A traffic cam shows now-open I-70 in Burlington, Colorado.

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.
