I cannot remember a winter this cold or one where the snow hasn't melted between storms. It started snowing again on Friday, nice huge flakes at the mouth of the canyon & then we had snow flurries off and on all day Saturday. Mike & I got our 3 mile runs in right after we Skyped with Rob's family when it was only snowing lightly and the day's high was around 29 degrees. Sounds like a lot of fun, right? It was snowing this morning too. I'm getting a little tired of this.
Reports state that the coldest winter on record was in 1949. Really, really glad I didn't live her that year. I'm also grateful I don't live in Logan either, that city has the coldest recorded temperatures in Utah.
