Ryan Pedersen of Seattle said he wasn't ready for the unexpected snowfall.

"I love it but I’m kind of upset that I didn't bring the right toys for this weather."

The storm is slowly moving across the state towards the Plains but should clear out by Tuesday. 

The National Weather Service in Denver has issued a freeze warning.
