Colorado residents were impacted by a late-spring storm on Friday, with snow falling and temperatures plummeting.
Late Saturday morning, power outage tracker PowerOutage.US showed 115,113 without power in the state.
Fox Weather reported that the temperature dropped nearly 60 degrees and more than a foot of snow fell in locations including Black Forest and Aspen Park.
Twitter users are sharing photos and videos of the surprise snowstorm, which caused major tree damage in some areas.
The storm also caused the Major League Baseball game between the New York Mets and Colorado Rockies to be postponed.

Trees were damaged in Golden, CO as well:
West and South metro Denver had significant tree damage. Colorado Springs metro is even worse if you can believe it…tree disaster in my book. Nearly every city block had tree damage. Some roads were impassable earlier today. It was dangerous to be driving or walking. #COwx
