Winter getting in full swing

Inches to pile up; local trails closed to protect wildlife
LINDSAY EPPICH/Herald
Slushy roads caused Greeley driver Justin Deviney to slide 537 feet and tip over his flatbed truck Wednesday on Colorado Highway 140 near Hesperus. Fort Lewis Mesa firefighters Chris Anderson, left, and Corey Jabour were at the wet scene to help right the truck and control traffic.
More snow is in the forecast for the next two days in Durango and Silverton, where John Wesley shovels snow from a building Wednesday after seven days of continuous snow. In the background is Kendall Mountain.
