From a Google-hosted AP article:

The storm also closed portions of I-25 and I-80 in Colorado and Wyoming.  The I-80 closure from Laramie to Cheyenne, Wyoming was necessitated by nearly 70 separate crash incidents.  Emergency personnel simply needed time to clear the road.

From another Google-hosted AP article (captions are also from the article):

A slow-moving storm has dumped more than 2 feet of snow on parts of Colorado and much more is expected. It's expected to be the state's strongest October snowstorm in 12 years. Up to 18 inches of snow was forecast in Denver and up to 4 feet was possible in the Colorado mountains. (AP Photo/Ed Andrieski)

Forecasters predict that that the snow will continue to fall through the day on Thursday before moving out of the area. (AP Photo/David Zalubowski)

And, finally, from the blog of some old friends.  They live in Colorado and got to witness the storm first-hand. (Lucky!) Many more pictures on their site (here and here).
