A day of differences in Utah

After an insignificant winter with only a little snow in December, I must have become complacent in assuming we had successfully avoided winter while much of the country suffered in various ways. Snow on the mountains but mainly sunshine with temps reaching the high 70s, a truly easy winter.

Today was get even time. Sunshine and 60s in the morning. Then semi tipping winds from shifting directions (my high van battled hours of it, and heaps of dust). Accidents and road closures. Rain greeting a trip to an evening appointment ~ for a mile or so. Then snow, more snow - huge flakes. Followed by a blizzard to top it off, with a great temperature drop. (Gloves and coats had been put away months ago. Later fog making finding even familiar roads difficult.

Definitely a semi-terrific Utah day. A warning not to plant the veggies before the usual Mother's Day mark.

We are sure to be back to sunshine again tomorrow.

Wayne - previous snow days reported but had not eventuated. Had thought we were becoming part of Florida for winter ~ even at times we seemed more tropical.

Sheila - thanks for your thoughts in my adversity. My trip to an early appointment today to mentor reading at our Elementary school might be a little brisk.

Sometimes Winter likes to remind us one last time of how nice spring can be.

On the bright side, it will melt quickly.

Bob ~ Midday was supposed to be snow limit - but it has a mind og its own. Ski-fields have had around 25" of new snow in last 24 hours.

Memories of those (frequent it seems) Mid-April snows. It's one of the things I love about Utah. Winter gives us an encore day sometimes before the April showers that bring the May flowers.
