First snowman of the season!

The Blizzard of 2010, last week, was a huge let down in terms of quality sculpting snow.  There was so much hype the Tuesday before Thanksgiving regarding "the blizzard that wasn't" that I even received an email warning from the local tv station:

Dear visitor,
With the severe weather system approaching the Wasatch Front, has set up a special page to keep you up-to-date with the latest information on this storm. This page includes links to closures, the Live 5 Weather map and the latest news. Please visit the KSL Storm Coverage Page for the most recent information.
National Weather Service issuing a blizzard warning for much of the state. A strong cold front is expected to arrive in Northern Utah by 2-4pm, in the Wasatch Front between 3p-6p, and then through the rest of the state. Expect the wind gusts to blow between 30 and 50mph as the front arrives. Bitter cold air should move in quickly, with temperatures in the teens tonight. Single digits possible tomorrow morning. More snow is possible along the Wasatch Front tomorrow morning as well. Highs tomorrow could stay below 20. Lows Thanksgiving could drop below zero if skies clear. Download the Live 5 Weather app to keep you informed. Also keep viewing for more updates. -Grant Weyman, Live 5 Weather HD 11.23.10
It is highly recommended that you do not attempt to drive in this storm. If it is necessary please give yourself extra time and take extra precautions while on the road.
Be safe out there!
Your Team

Suffice-to-say, only a couple of inches fell in the valley and the blizzard became a bit of an in-joke in Salt Lake.  Our friend, Bryan Rowe, posted this picture of a t-shirt on facebook.

Thankfully that changed on Sunday when we got a nice fresh dumping of snow.  Sunday is the perfect day for a snowstorm, don't you think?
