NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. -- Former New Smyrnan Shelly Vincent would be the first to tell you she was spoiled by the beautiful weather here, especially this time of year.

Juxtapose the weather here with temps in the upper 70s amid beautiful sunny skies while keeping in mind it's early February with what Vincent was dealing with today in Today in Denver, Colo: Nearly a half a foot of snow, icy roads.

The winter storm is blamed for one traffic fatality in Denver, according to law enforcement.
