You can’t fool Mother Nature.
The heavy snow storm forecast for the Denver area Thursday night fizzled out as nothing much more than heavy rain, a light dusting of the white stuff and some black ice by Friday morning.
Lincoln County Schools and Lincoln Charter School were on a two-hour delay because of icy roads and walkways, but other than that it was back to business as usual in Denver this morning.
Forecasters had predicted as much as five inches of snow for our area, but by the time the temperature had dropped enough, most of the heavy rain had moved out.
Some trees and small limbs were down along area roadways from the very high winds Thursday night, but all roads were passable.
