This April has proven to be drastically different compared to last year – all thanks to the snow.

Last April was the driest in Colorado history due to a lack of moisture and precipitation.

At this time last year, Colorado firefighters had just wrapped up the Lower North Fork Fire in Jefferson County and were nearly a month away from battling the High Park Fire in Larimer County.

Regardless of the snow, Poudre Fire Authority is still expecting more fires in the upcoming season.

Hot and dry weather combined with wind can quickly wipe out the moisture Larimer County has recently received.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, hundreds of families in Larimer County are struggling to find enough cash to have their own turkey dinner.

The Food Bank for Larimer County teamed up with the Poudre School District to collect just over 1300 turkeys but are still coming up short of their goal.

They hope to reach 2500 turkeys by November 16 at 4:30 p.m.

If you’d like to donate, you can drop off a turkey at the food bank which is located at 1301 Blue Spruce Drive in Fort Collins. They are open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
