Portions of Interstate 70 were reopened late Thursday after being closed since the morning due to safety concerns during the snow.

"If you have to ask 'How do I get there?', the answer is, you can't," the Colorado State Patrol had warned during the closing on X.

Where the roads weren't closed, accidents abounded. Thursday morning, Denver Police and C-DOT Crews worked together to free a wrecked vehicle from the snow after it crashed into the concrete barrier on I-25 at Centennial.

Nederland, Colorado, reported 53 inches of snow -- over four feet -- from the storm. Most of the Denver Metro area had received 6 to 12 inches of snow by noon, while the airport recorded 5.7 inches, falling short of the biggest snowstorm this season, as 7.5 inches of snow fell on Oct. 28-29, 2023.

Over 800 flights were canceled on Thursday at Denver International Airport. Over 120,000 customers were without power early Thursday afternoon, according to PowerOutage.US, but that number had fallen to 15,000 by Thursday night. Heavy, wet snow took down a power pole and lines in southwest Denver on Thursday morning. Crews worked in the heavy falling snow to get the lines cleaned up and power restored to the area.

This was a classic March snowstorm for Colorado. Four of Denver's top 20 snowstorms have occurred between March 13 and 22 -- and 10 happened in March or April.

Local resident Debb Conn told AccuWeather's Tony Laubach Wednesday evening, "It's not March in Colorado unless we get a big blast of a snowstorm. I love it, I'm here for it, it signifies the end of winter, the beginning of spring, and it's what Colorado is all about."
