    Yep, looks about the same here in Draper. We got a sweet ride in CC yesterday afternoon. Not so sweet today unless you like cold and muddy. Guess it's time to start planning a Gooseberry trip.

    Gooseberry will be getting snow soon too, if not already.

    That's rarely if ever stopped us. Headed there on the 22nd. Guarantee the riding will be better in So Utah than in Draper.

    Anybody else?
    Yes, everything is covered in snow here. My thermometer says it got down to zero degrees last night, though it has now warmed up to 2F.
    Utah is a very special and unique place. There is no where else like it on earth. Please take care of it and keep the remaining wild areas in pristine condition. The world will be a better place if you do.

    Holy Moly! You do live in a cold area. That's gotta be one of the coldest towns in the west?

    Sometimes (fairly often) we have the coldest spot in the nation, but several places average colder than us (Fraser CO, Gunnison CO, West Yellowstone MT, Stanley ID, etc.).

    In town our record low is -56F. Maybell, which is just west of us recorded a -61F, which is the coldest temperature ever recorded in Colorado.

    On some websites, it can be misleading when you look up the averages for Craig because they use the Craig 4SW station which sits on a hill at the mine and is much warmer at night (in fact their record low is only -41F; a figure reached on a regular basis at the weather station in town). In town and in the valley, it's usually much colder at night than at Craig 4SW (last winter when I had -40F at the house, the mine was at -28F). The Craig-Moffat station is the one to look at.

    Tonight is supposed to be a much warmer 17F because it's supposed to snow all night:

    It can be fairly chilly here in winter:



    0F isn't that cold. The -61F in Maybell was. When you think about it in this way; "if it were 90 degrees warmer, it would still be below freezing", it puts it in perspective.

    Just got 17" out of this storm at the Steamboat Ski Area. (Day before Thanksgiving is opening day) About 10" in 2 days in the valley. Last year I was raking leaves in December and skiing 1 manmade strip of death. This year should be a really sweet start. Will probably start skiing on Rabbit Ears pass in the next day or so. No more raking leaves.

    My aunt said that she got 2 feet of heavy wet snow in her yard in Escalante. That is just crazy.

    Any other reports from So. Utah?

    Capitol Reef got 9" according to the NPS.

    Here why I live we only got 2" or so.
