A snowy evening on Park Ave. (Kevin J. Beaty/Denverite)

As you might have heard, the weather has been pretty bad in the last 12 hours or so.

Of course, that means travel has become difficult and dangerous.

Maybe don’t drive if you don’t have to.

I know I say this a lot, but usually it’s to spare you from a traffic nightmare. Today, it’s to keep you safe.

Snowy and icy conditions have lead CDOT to issue the same warning. Their Twitter account in the last 12 hours has been a litany of slide-offs and crashes.

Chain laws are in effect throughout many — if not all — mountain counties and passes. Check before you go anywhere.

Better check on that flight, too.

That really goes without saying, doesn’t it?

Denver International Airport got around 5 to 8 inches of snow last night — much more than expected — and 9News is reporting that more than 300 flights have been canceled.

The airport’s got jokes.
