A fall storm has brought the season's first snow to Colorado, knocking out power to thousands of people but exciting skiers.
About 5 inches of snow fell in Denver Wednesday, with more falling in areas to the north.
Tree limbs, many still with leaves, got weighed down by the snow and snapped, breaking power lines.
The taste of winter came as President Barack Obama made his second visit to Denver in less than a month. The last time he visited some people passed out from the heat.
The same storm also brought snow to Utah and Wyoming, where it temporarily shut down a portion of Interstate 80 between Laramie and Cheyenne.
Colorado's mountains also got snow earlier this month and three resorts are already open for the season.
