I believe this was the snowstorm where snow was dumped at Civic Center Park. This snow didn't all melt until June.

Hi There - That sounds about right. Take a look at this picture which seems to show exactly the scene you describe. Thanks for reading and commenting! 

I am currently reading a fiction book that is set during this blizzard. It is so interesting, so I had to come check the facts. Kudos to the authors, they all got it correct! I say authors because this book is made up of various novellas written by different people, but they share the same setting. Thank you for this article. God's blessings to you and Merry Christmas!

Hi Mandy and thanks for the comment. We get a lot of really great authors who dig deep into our collection to make certain they've got their facts straight. It's really great to see that folks like you appreciate their hard work! 

I remember the "white Christmas Day " in 1982. That was a big storm too, and my snow shovel broke from the weight of snow in my Driveway

Hi There! The Christmas Eve Blizzard is one that really stands out for longtime Denverites. It certainly threw a wrench in lots of family get-togethers. Stay warm!

My nephew was born during that blizzard. Two ambulances got stuck trying to take his mother to the hospital. She ultimately got there in a front end loader.

Wow! I think she lived a fear that every pregnant woman contemplates at least once.

The remnants of the 1982 storm didn't seem to melt away for months.
