Default No blower motor?

So I started the car this morning, and let it run for about a half hour. The heat was cranked up pretty high on defrost. It is Denver, CO so you need it. I came out and started driving to work as usual. About half way through the 20 minute drive I had turned the heat down. Tried to turn it back up and no heat. I think it is the blower motor/fan possibly. But no matter how high you turn it it does not even make noise. No air flow whatsoever. I did a search and people were saying that the fan/blower located under the cowl is most likely th problem. Any other ideas?

Just thought I'd pipe in that this just died on my car as well at 97,000 or so miles.

Sounds likely that the blower has kicked it. Have you tried running the ACC diagnostics to check for fault codes? Presss the OFF and AUTO buttons on the ACC panel at the same time. It will run a series of diagnostics and return either a "0" meaning no faults found or a series a numbers. Let us know.
