It all started as a beautiful, but windy, sunny day on Tuesday 4/14.
I don’t know why, but I find it hilarious that the weather app says it’s dreary. ~Nichole
Then, the storm came in. It has been snowing pretty consistently since it started yesterday.
Fact from Facebook: It has snowed more in spring this year than it did all of fall and winter! ~Rody
In fact, it has snowed so much in the last 24 hours that lots of people have gotten on facebook to express their feelings about it!
If it’s going to snow, I want presents. ~Rebecca
Which was my thought exactly. These past seasons it has snowed in Utah: the day I got back from California back in November right before Thanksgiving, and then not again until Christmas Eve. I want presents.
Snow is not a present. Hmm… unless it’s a snow cone. That can be a present. ~Me
The snowflakes were so large this morning that it was like they were pieces of paper falling from the sky. I told my little brother this and he looked up the largest snowflake on record: 15 inches. “See!” I told him, “Paper falling from the sky!” He then took a piece of paper, his math assignment, and let it float to the ground. I picked up the mock snowflake and exclaimed, “Math homework! I hate this snow!”
Dear Utahns: You complained about not having snow this winter? Here: I’ll dump it all on you now!! 70 in January, and snow now. Why? Because screw you, that’s why. -Mother Nature. ~Conveyed to us via my sister Elona.
This just goes to show that we don’t have to have snow in fall and winter for our water. We can get it all in the spring!
Aw Utah, I wouldn’t take you any other way.
