A Cold Cold Winter

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.
