I was fully expecting some snowfall.  The news predicted it.  I drove from Arvada to Commerce City, and a few snow flakes were falling on the way, but it was nothing too bad.  I got to the stadium and I headed down to the photographers workroom, unpacked my gear and started working on my code replacement files for the game.
