A rambling storm over Colorado dropped as much a foot of snow in the mountains and shed rain at lower elevations today.
The weather slowed marathon runners, dampened baseball fans and jump-started the ski season.
The snow caused some fender-benders but no injuries along Interstate 70 through the mountains.
Freezing rain made the Denver Marathon even tougher as participants ran through neighborhood streets.
Fans at the Colorado Rockies' playoff series against the Arizona Diamondbacks cheered in the rain.
