White Nights, Utah Style
These photos were taken about 2 weeks ago. We've actually had some beautiful days 40 plus degrees this week, it's chilly in the shade and once the sun goes down. The valleys are having inversions--we live near a canyon so our air has been clean.
The snow started heavy the first day back to school in the afternoon--luckily I got kids to piano and back before the worst hit. Poor Tim was stuck in 5 mph traffic all the way home, his Saturn started to overheat because they weren't moving enough. It took him 2 hours to get home. I had Taran and Timo go out and shovel the driveway once I knew Tim was close so he could get up it. We got about 2 feet and we are not a main road so it had not been plowed yet. There was no point in shoveling earlier since it was coming down so heavily. The next day we got more snow and those are the photos of the kids playing on the piles in front of our house!!! Huge! Tim and Timo are in the first photo after Tim had tackled Timo on his way home from sledding. Sledding was fun those first days now it's icy snow.
