As abruptly as Amazon announced in September that it was hunting for a place to build a second full-sized headquarters, the Seattle conglomerate on Thursday announced 20 cities that made it to the next level, including Denver. The city was one of 238 proposals submitted to Amazon, which said it would invest $5 billion to build a second campus in North America. It needed a future site that could house around 50,000 employees in about 8 million square feet — the size of Amazon’s headquarters in Seattle. “We are absolutely excited to have made the shortlist. The work continues,” said Sam Bailey, who oversaw the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp.’s effort.

Northern Colorado and the Western Slope will claim larger shares of Colorado’s population as the state adds 3 million new residents over the next three and a half decades, according to state forecasts.

The latest snowstorm was the largest of the season so far, and also featured a rare Denver bull’s-eye. Widespread snow totals of 8 to 14 inches covered the entire metro area in a fresh blanket of white, resulting in treacherous road conditions and a tedious clean-up process. The official observation at Denver International Airport, which usually is a poor representation of Denver snowfall, was also an impressive 9.6 inches. It was the biggest snowstorm in the city since Apr. 16-17 2016, when 12.1 inches was recorded. It is also now the 7th largest February snowstorm in Denver since records began in 1874. Leading up to the storm, the snowfall looked to largely be driven by upslope winds. In this area, the upslope flow refers to winds that blow from the Eastern Plains, westward and uphill toward the mountains. Such a scenario typically results in snowfall getting maximized close to the foothills, while the I-25 corridor gets lighter amounts, and DIA ends up with close to … [Read more...] about Denver was the center of a snowfall bull’s-eye.

The mild start to the week will soon be a distant memory in the Denver metro. Another winter storm is targeting the Front Range for Wednesday and Thursday. This storm will likely be more significant than the other systems this month. In fact, this storm could bring Denver its largest snowfall of the season so far. The storm that set the current benchmark was the Nov. 24-25 system, when 5 inches fell in Denver and 6- to 10-inch amounts were common along and west of Interstate 25.
