Nancy and I are having a delightful time with our first Utah winter. After many years in Florida, even the sub-zero temperatures are fun and exciting. As we have adapted, we have also learned quite a few things about Utah winters.
It has been a very good week here in Johnson Canyon. We are coming up on the end of our first year in Utah, and are still having a marvelous time exploring and discovering new things. It still amazes us that we actually live here, and even something as simple as walking to the mailbox (1/4 mile) is wonderful.
I recently presented a session on teaching electricity at the Utah Science Teachers Association Conference. On my way home, I did quite a bit of photography of the snowy landscape, but one roadside slope caught my eye. Driving past, I saw something that I had only seen in books, and a few recent weather articles. Snow rollers! They are usually quite rare, and of the hundreds of snowy road cuts that I passed on the drive home, this was the only one that had them.
