Twitter is abuzz with Denverites whining and rejoicing at the city's total lack of snow

The East Coast is getting a shit-ton of snow, according to such venerable news sources as the New York Times and my mother, who texted me pictures of human-sized snow piles this morning. But thus far, Denver is bone-dry. It's a fact that everyone here seems to have noticed -- and tweeted about it.
