With more than six inches of new snow falling in the Grand Junction area overnight, travel along city streets and sidewalks was a treacherous task this morning. Here, Joel Rosenstrauch and his cattle dog Sally negotiate their way near 10th Street and Gunnison Avenue. Most schools are closed for the day. The storm is expected to continue into this evening, and the city remains on accident alert because of tricky driving conditions. PHOTO GALLERY
