Snow Squall Obscures Colorado Valley Within Seconds

Colorado man Geoff Paquette had gone outside to record some lightning over Steamboat Springs on December 22 when he saw a snow squall rapidly coming up the valley.

Paquette’s video shows the valley before him rapidly obscured by the advancing cloud.

“There was a lot of snow lightning going on,” he told Storyful. “I saw the squall coming up the valley. In 60 seconds it was a blizzard with 40 mph winds and blinding snow.” Credit: Geoff Paquette via Storyful
