Last Gasp of Winter?
Pardon me for hurrying Winter along. It has been a long time since the first snows near the end of September. Winter has had its chance.
Here we have had a foot of snow on the Valley followed by days in the 60s. Even this afternoon's photo at Jordan commons, Sandy UT shows sunshine and clear skies. Do I detect a show of color in the normally charcoal and white of mountains of the Wasatch Front? A sign of Spring? We can hope.
There will be snow enough at altitude for a long while yet, enough to keep locals and visitor's happy. I leave my skiing attempts until Spring, feeling that Winter on the mountains is best viewed at a distance. Even deep snow is easy to tolerate when it is bathed in brilliant sunshine, for Spring sports.
Ah sunshine! The return of Vitamin D. Life and color is returning to our community.
