Colorado was blanketed by up to two feet of snow as frigid air moving east brought freezing temperatures to the Great Lakes and dumped snow and freezing rain over the Rockies and Plains. Temperatures dropped into the teens in Minnesota, Wisconsin and North Dakota. Snow fell over Arizona, New Mexico and southern Colorado, where storms overnight dumped 24 inches at Nathrop and 20 inches at Fairplay. Flagstaff, Ariz., got four inches of snow.

A strong storm dropped up to 2 feet of snow in the Colorado high country Tuesday, replenishing ski resorts but making mountain travel treacherous and forcing some of the world's top downhill skiers off the slopes. "It's a big one, a really big one today," said Hanzi Arnold, a food and beverage manager at the Hotel Jerome in Aspen, where the National Weather Service said 2 feet had fallen by Tuesday evening.

A spring snowstorm roared into Colorado on Wednesday, dumping more than a foot of snow and forcing the closure of major highways, schools and Denver International Airport before plowing into the Plains states late in the day. High winds created blizzard conditions and triggered outages that left 50,000 customers without power. Slushy snow made road conditions hazardous, especially during an often-futile morning commute.

Major highways reopened Saturday in southern Colorado after being blocked by more than 3 feet of snow, and hundreds of travelers hit the road after spending the night in emergency shelters. "It was just a big storm. It came in real bad," said Rudy Pineda, who helped set up a shelter in Washington High School in Walsenburg. About 275 people were housed at the school after the storm closed roads into and out of the town near the New Mexico state line.

Seeking its own network-defining program a la MTV's "Beavis and Butt-head," cable's Comedy Central introduces "South Park"--an animated series whose characters look like something out of "Peanuts" but swear like Joe Pesci in a Martin Scorsese film. Blatantly designed to tickle the funny bones of teenage boys and those who think like them, the show delivers plenty of lowbrow laughs, at the same time indulging in excesses seemingly calculated to shock the sensibilities of TV watchdogs.
