Mild Winter for Sandy Utah
What a strange winter! Some snow on the hills, a few chill winds and the odd snow flurry in town.
Last year we could not turn the snow off - this year, the snow plow operators sit idle. With promises (unfulfilled mostly) of elusive storms, they become strangely active, showing their presence in Sandy streets, getting truly excited over a mere inch of snow if they can find it to play with.
With last week's dump, I had my moments on my electric scooter, bursting through dry powder, making my way to the Trax stations, and onto sliding trains. Plowed snow quickly ices making my endeavors a real challenge - spinning my wheels, for the most part on slush in roadways, Often easier to begin my day in town than to try to return home around 6am
Another storm promised two hours ago - after high 50s temperatures. Nothing yet. What a change that will be to recent sunshine, and WARMTH. Buds are bursting forth - to decorate approaching Spring. After all, it's less than four weeks to LDS Church Conference, and only a few days away from Daylight Saving.
Overcast, windy, with dropping temperatures.
Snowbird has a snow cover in excess of 100 inches (to keep our National, and International visitors happy - and there are heaps of them.)
As always, this is a great time to visit Sandy, Utah, or even to consider making it your home.
