The First Snow of Winter
A short time ago, we had our first "winter" snow storm in Utah Valley. Down on the Valley floor, the snow only lasted a few hours and then it melted away. But up on the mountain tops, the evidence of this first real storm of the season is still visible. Most of the State of Utah is still abnormally dry and much of the state is in a moderate drought situation. Warm weather and sunny skies have replaced the normal cold weather and snow. I have been watching the hills and it looks like all the visible snow might melt before another storm dumps is feathery load on the mountains.
