Interstate 70 across Colorado's Eastern Plains is back open now that a winter storm that created blizzard conditions has moved out of the state.
Eastbound lanes of the highway between Limon and the Kansas line reopened early Wednesday morning.
The storm dumped over a foot of snow in some parts of the plains and strong winds created snow drifts several feet high.
The mountains of southwestern Colorado got up to 2 feet of snow from the storm, raising the danger of avalanches. The Colorado Avalanche Information Center advises against backcountry travel there now.
