Slideshow: When Aspen’s first major snowstorm collides with a widespread power outage, mountain folks make do

Not a great morning to be without power after the first major snowstorm hit the Aspen area, but we’re mountain folks … so, no problem.

Businesses in the Aspen area and through the Roaring Fork Valley adjusted as power was out for more than three hours. When the power went out just before 9:30 a.m. on Monday, the temperature was hovering around 10 degrees and there was a half-foot or more of snow on the ground.

Stay warm tonight, Aspen.
