More and more snow in Sandy Utah

More and more snow in Sandy Utah

And it keeps coming.

Snow in Sandy Utah

Even though there is a hint of breakthrough, the promised 1 – 3 inches of snow has turned into 15 inches.

No worry whether the mountains have a cover – the valley has its share as well. The mountains are still in cloud.

Trees that have hung onto their leaves, waiting for the signal of frosts to lose them, are struggling under a weight of snow. They will exact their revenge on by-standers as they release their loads on the unwary and the underneath.

Neighborhood roofs give a true indication of the amount of snow received so far.

The most snow at one time for many years and we are only into November.

Phone calls indicate that many part of Utah have been blessed with this moisture.

It's now time for blades, snow blowers and shovels.

What a great excuse for exercise.

Very nice.  We do not have snow and we had our first cool day in the mid 60's.

Larry, although the snow can be pretty to look it, it can be very hard to live in.  And the snow in your photos looks like "wet" snow, which makes it very heavy.  That's the kind that pulls down trees and electric wires.  Not so pretty.

Tim - we all can't live at altitude. Your temps sound good.

Karen - certainly wet this time. We've taken limbs off some of the trees that have drooped down under snow weight. A few awnings in the neighborhood have suffered. since writing, we have cleaned around cars and the driveway. City snowplows are still a lottle tardy.

We really miss living in the mountains and having the snow in winter. When our house sells we hope to get back to Colorado and all 4 seasons and white Christmas.

Jeanne and Ralph - I sense your longing. Christmas is still aways off but we are likely to have good snow, after last year's fizzer. I rather like the snow in my adopted home in the mountains.

Larry, you are sitting in an area with over a foot of snow and I am in southwest Florida where people are complaining about temperatures in the 60's. Go figure! Enjoy your day and the  snow.

Larry, it always is amazing when the weather forecasters get it wrong, and by a long shot!     We got a skiff, only couple of inches, but really could use more!    Good luck to your trees with leaves and hope this fall storm does not do much damage!  Stay warm!

Joan - add another 5 inches from overnight. Now a few patches of light. Re-doing yesterday's clearing. At least I don't have reasons to go out today, except for Church and the path is cleared.

Thanks for sharing your plentiful snowfall with us, time for the winter recreationists in your area to get busy.  We have had a few light snowfalls so far, but nothing that lasted.
