Yep, Vicki and I live in northern Colorado, and had our lives halted, outside the home anyway, by the Solstice storm of 2006.
Fortunately, we kept electricity and warmth and were well-stocked in the pantry. Hours of clearing, by snow shovel, the driveway and sidewalks and the area around my Honda, parked in front.
Vicki and I also walked a bit in boots, then she went out in snowshoes for more. Great neighbor kids, Pat and Clay, helped me shovel, and a few guys with snowblowers cleared the sidewalks in full everywhere on our street.
