DENVER — The snow from Monday’s storm is melting quickly, but it left behind quite the mess. Broken tree branches line many metro-area streets. The weight of the snow on the branches full of leaves was just too much. In Wheat Ridge, Eugene Pontius had a massive limb fall into his driveway. “It missed both vehicles and the house,” he said.
