        AIRPORT WHERE NORTH WINDS GUSTED TO 36 MPH...CAUSING NEAR-
        BLIZZARD CONDITIONS WITH VISIBILITIES FREQUENTLY REDUCED TO
        1/2 MILE IN SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW.  MANY TRAVELERS WERE
        MAROONED WHEN TRAINS...PLANES...AND BUSES WERE UNABLE TO MAKE
        THEIR SCHEDULES.  UTILITY LINES WERE AGAIN DAMAGED AS A
        RESULT OF THE STORM.

        UNTIL LATE EVENING ON THE 26TH.  NORTH TO NORTHEAST
        WINDS GUSTED TO 30 MPH ON BOTH DAYS.  THE COLD AIR MASS

        25TH TO A LOW OF 8 DEGREES ON THE 26TH.
      IN 1995...A POTENT EARLY SPRING STORM PRODUCED HEAVY SNOW IN
        THE MOUNTAINS...BUT SKIPPED OVER METRO DENVER...BEFORE
        PRODUCING BLIZZARD CONDITIONS AND 6-FOOT DRIFTS OVER
        EASTERN COLORADO...CAUSING THE CLOSURE OF I-70 AND OTHER
        HIGHWAYS.  ONLY 0.7 INCH OF SNOW FELL AT THE SITE OF THE
        FORMER STAPLETON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.  NORTH WINDS
        GUSTED TO 40 MPH AT DENVER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT ON
        THE 25TH.
      IN 2001...A PERSISTENT BAND OF MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOW SHOWERS
        WITH A FEW EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS FORMED IN THE FOOTHILLS
        AROUND ESTES PARK AND SPREAD TO THE SOUTHEAST ACROSS BOULDER
        AND DENVER AND ON THE PLAINS TO THE EAST OF DENVER.  THUNDER
        AND SNOW WAS REPORTED AT JEFFERSON COUNTY...CENTENNIAL...AND
        DENVER INTERNATIONAL AIRPORTS DURING THE EVENING OF THE 25TH.

      IN 1935...A SEVERE DUST STORM SWEPT ACROSS THE CITY.  THE
        DENSE DUST BLEW IN ON A GALE FROM THE EAST-NORTHEAST.
        THE DUST "BANK" WAS FIRST VISIBLE ON THE NORTHEASTERN
        HORIZON AT ABOUT 2:00 PM.  IT ADVANCED TOWARD THE CITY
        AS A ROLLING...SWIRLING...YELLOWISH-TO SMOKE-BLACK CLOUD.
        AT 2:06 PM...THE CLOUD OF DUST ENVELOPED THE STATION.

        2:25 PM...THE VISIBILITY WAS INCREASING AND WAS ABOVE
        1000 FEET AT 3:10 PM.  THEREAFTER...THE SUN APPEARED
        AS A DIM "BALL OF FIRE" AT TIMES.  THE DUST WAS
        PARTIALLY GONE AT 8:30 PM.  DURING THE STORM...NORTHEAST

        HAD NOT BEEN REACHED UNTIL APRIL 21ST.  THE TEMPERATURE
        ALSO EXCEEDED THE PREVIOUS DAILY RECORD OF 75 DEGREES SET
        IN 1960.  STRONG NORTHWEST CHINOOK WINDS GUSTING TO 37 MPH

        GUST TO 76 MPH WAS RECORDED IN BOULDER.  A DUST STORM

        COLLAPSE IN NORTH DENVER...RIPPED A MECHANICAL SHED OFF THE
        ROOF OF A BUILDING IN DOWNTOWN DENVER...AND DOWNED POWER
        LINES IN COMMERCE CITY.  WIND GUSTS RANGING FROM 55 TO
        68 MPH WERE RECORDED.  AT STAPLETON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT...
        WHERE NO THUNDER WAS HEARD...A MICROBURST WIND GUST TO 55 MPH
