The last three weeks, and the last 72 hours in particular, have been incredibly helpful.

See where we were at in January 22 to where we are this morning. Still drought conditions, but we are better off than we were a few weeks ago. That’s for sure! I’ll be interested to see where we are come Thursday morning.

It might not appear this way in the valley currently, but this last storm BURIED the mountains in central utah. Places I could easily get into with my truck last weekend, even in the upper foothills was not even close to accessible yesterday morning. I was pushing snow with the bumper in places it was bone dry 3 days prior.

Ps side note: for those who were wondering, every buck I saw yesterday, including a mid 180s and a couple upper 170s, had both sides, so don’t get too fired up just yet. Deer look like they are in good condition right now. If they can keep it up for another 2 months we should be in good shape! Don’t chase them just yet.

We got a slow and steady rain in Cedar than snow. Warming back up but was seriously needed. Haven't looked at detail information of mountain yet but looks like a bump from KSL charts

Friends just had to "evacuate" house in Austin because of 6" of snow and wide scale power outage. Poor things have a newborn in a historic brick house. Not much down there is designed to weather big snowstorms.

The last few days have been immensely helpful across the whole state. Make no mistake, some areas are still in pretty bad shape overall, but boy how the last few days have turned the tides!

looks like things are not so bad after all. Time to move onto a new subject to worry about.

Flooding?? That's all we need. If the spring time months are warm and dryer than normal, these last storms wont make a bit of difference.

True. Even with the storms forecasted in the next couple weeks, if that rounds out our year, were still very screwed. Im not sure were out of the woods on water for animals, fish, and people yet.

If you want something different to think about, it could be in some specific areas we got too much snow too quickly, and that could impact animals.

Pretty much all regions are doing better. Several drainage are actually doing great. But many are still behind especially when you consider last year's massive deficits.

We may be laughing in the spring that we were ever concerned. 1-2 more big storms could catch up the entire state, or even overwhelm a drainage or two. Only time will tell but I'd be extremely happy for the climate forecasts for the southern portion of the state to have been wrong.
