Colorado snow heads out of state

DENVER – A sloppy spring snowstorm is moving out of Colorado. But the slush it is leaving behind has caused problems from the Wyoming state line down to the southern reaches.

Business at Denver International Airport was back to normal Wednesday, a day after an estimated 5,000 travelers became stranded by canceled flights.

The snowstorm left about 9 inches in Denver, and up to 23 inches in the city’s western suburbs.

The storm churned southeast toward the Oklahoma panhandle and north Texas Wednesday afternoon, leaving about a foot of heavy snow in many areas. Many businesses closed early, but not all were complaining. In Walsenburg, a Mexican restaurant called Corine’s reported a steady stream of diners wanting a hot bowl of green chile stew.
