Winter Whiteout Wreaks Chaos in Colorado

Occurred on March 13, 2019 / Greenland, Colorado, USA

Info from Licensor: Although news outlets were warning of this major blizzard coming, which we hear all the time it never turns out to be as bad as planned. They had canceled school the night before, which I thought was weird, but I decided to squeeze in one roofing inspection before the storm hit in Colorado Springs. On my way home the snow slowly started to fall and then got worse and worse. I then hit a dead stop or going 2-3 miles an hour for over 30 minutes. Once I approached the scene I knew why traffic had slowed so much. There were three different pileups in a 5-mile stretch which I estimated to be around 100 cars affected.
