30 counties are now under advisories, watches, or severe weather warnings.

But maybe no one wants to discuss the great monitoring opportunities this allows?

Monitoring is underway here!

Reports of snow beginning to accumulate on I25 up by the WY border. Still rain here in Ft Collins.

Anyone monitoring for system busy bongs today? CSP was using 154.905 saying they were getting a lot of busy signals. At first I thought they meant on the telephone, but I guess that is why they had reverted to VHF.

CDOT saying they won't deal with cars stuck on I-70 ramps because it will tie them up for too long.

Yeah I am seeing busies around here.

Hard to quantify from control channel data as channel grant denials are only sent on a site's control channel if the subscriber radio requesting the channel grant is affiliated on that site.

WB I-70 closed at about MM 252 before Hwy 74 due to an overturned truck. There's no easy local detour as that is the 2-3 mile stretch where Hwy 40 joins I-70.

COTRIP seems to be having a bandwidth issue today. It must be getting a lot of hits. Either you can't get to the site or pages don't load once you get into the site. I have tried several different paths into the site with the same results.
