    I think Sombeech and Governor Herbert put the kabosh on that.

    The mailbox is almost buried.

    Yes I am. Thank you for asking. I'm fine with not getting any mail. It's all just bills anyways.

    A few years ago when we got monster snow and nobody could get rid of it, and the street crews just kept pushing it back over the mailboxes and back into our driveways, the Mail Lady and I had a few "exchanges" via written letters in my mailbox, talking about how I had to keep the mailbox clear or I would no longer receive my mail.

    I wrote back and said I was ok with that.

    Then I got a notification from the city after she tattled on me, saying it's my responsibility to keep the mailbox clear, and I responded by saying it was their city drivers that pushed the snow in front of the mailbox. It was the thick concrete snow that a snowblower can't touch. Shouldn't the city snow removal and the post office be on the same team?

    This was also when the news would have features telling us it's illegal to push our snow out into the road, but it's perfectly fine for the plows to barricade our driveway with a 3 foot ice wall, 5 feet out into the street.

    I caved and just dumped 4 bags of salt right there in front of the mailbox, basically because my wife was worried our internet would get shut off because we didn't receive the bill. This was before we did much online.

    Great story.

    I'm with you -- the hypocrisy within the city "services" really bothers me. So they can just barricade us in, with the expectation that we're all going to have snow blowers and strong backs to dig our way out. But what about all the elderly and/or invalid folks out there who can't physically remove the snow -- I guess those types just don't get mail until the Spring then huh?

    4 bags of salt -- Lol my passive aggressive nature would've prompted me to do something very similar.

    I read an AP article just a week ago that claimed Utah was still below normal on snowpack.

    What a difference a week makes.

    Another nice little bump yesterday. If this keeps up we get to hear all of the "oh no, we are gonna have terrible floods." from our local news folks.

    Sweet! thanks for posting the update. That's good for the watersheds around SLC.

    I hope this winter keeps pummeling the Pine Valley mountains (north of St. George) so that the Gunlock Reservoir can overflow that causeway, now that I have a nice camera and a great drone for a once a decade event it seems. :crossingfingers:

    YES!!!! I've been there three times over the last two years and have yet to see it overflow. The Spring - Summer of 2017 it got REALLLLY close. In fact the water level crept up the west dike a ways before receding. I think I posted a TR about it...

    Well...the latest "big storm" was a swing and a miss...again. The report claimed three days of rain mixed with snow. I got 15 minutes of slow drizzle, and that was it.

    You need to head up into the hills. All of our resorts have done great over the last 36 hours and it isn't going to stop until Wednesday afternoon. If it wasn't for a god forsaken 9:00 conference call, I would be up there now. But I will be up in a few hours and if the lord blesses me, I will get a half day tomorrow and Wednesday as well. Lots of snow in them there hills!

    Ya, itís well above average right now for the entire state except two areas. 98% for bear river mountains and 94% for escalate area.

    Turning out to be a better than average water year for the entire state.
