Occupy Denver protestors pile up sleeping bags as snow nears - 26th Oct 2011

Wall Street protesters camped in downtown Denver are piling blankets and sleeping bags near bags of charcoal for a small grill. They're preparing for the first snowstorm of the season expected to hit the city Wednesday.

Protesters insist the wintry weather won't stop them.

Protesters have been getting briefings on winter camping, and they say they have a plan to place to check for signs of hypothermia as the storm hits. They've also gotten shovels and plan to take turns keeping the sidewalks clear of snow.

Still, protesters are watching the skies nervously. Some protesters say they may go inside for momentary warm-ups and that they worry some protesters may leave. Source
