Relive our April Fool's Day snowstorm in 76 seconds

As anyone who's seen Koyaanisqatsi can testify, time-lapse photography is cool -- and YouTube regular DenverLapse has made the technique his personal video signature. The clip above captures yesterday's storm, which screwed up the evening commute but didn't exactly paralyze the city. Looks great, though, and checking it out won't take a lot of time. "This is about 8 hours into 76 seconds," DenverLapse notes. So what are you waiting for?
