This weekend, the massive snowstorm pummeling the East Coast has caused 11 states to declare a state of emergency.  

Residents of places like New York, Baltimore, Washington D.C., and more are preparing for a snowy day in, and if not, they're strapping on their snowshoes before they head out into the now-infamous winter storm of 2016.

We here in Northern Colorado feel your pain-- while we haven't had such a life-threatening storm in quite a while, we're familiar with the snow controlling our commute, our workday, and pretty much everything else in our lives.

Colorado residents can sympathize with the snowy plight of the East Coasters, and we've even got some tips for you this weekend below.  Make sure you stay safe over all else, but don't forget about the fun stuff, too.
