As a transplant to Utah (from California) I have to say that the winter this year was way too long. Although the snow was lots of fun at Christmas for making snowmen with my grandkids, by the end of May it's was getting way old! We've had over a 200% snowpack this year and have had flooding as a result. Our neighborhood actually had to do some sandbagging as we live close to a river. The water is just starting to recede and sand bags are being removed, so hopefully summer is on it's way at last. Hooray!
