It's being called the Denver Blizzard, the Sprizzard, the Early-Spring Sucker Punch and other names we can't repeat here!

The storm that hit Colorado on March 23 dropped more than a foot of snow in parts of the metro area, setting new records.

The total snowfall at Denver International Airport was 13.1 inches, a record for March 23 in Colorado.

The old site at Stapleton recorded close to a foot of snow.

The National Weather Service office in Boulder reported 17 inches.

Here's a look at some of the totals:
