Snow doesn’t always stick in beautiful Colorado Springs, where temperatures sometimes swing 40 degrees Fahrenheit in just 24 hours. Like a well-scripted winter holiday, snow stuck during Christmas this year. Front Range communities experienced below-freezing temperatures while blanketed with a calm, fluffy snow fall Dec. 23-24 — a stark contrast to the blizzard conditions that rolled in Dec. 19, which closed many school districts. It’s the day after Christmas and, as usual, our blue skies refuse to retreat. The attached photos were taken this morning, Dec. 26, from Marksheffel Road in northeast Colorado Springs, overlooking Stetson Hills Boulevard.
