First sighting of snow!

Last nights rain and thunderstorm was quite impressive in Utah county. The lightning lit up the sky with long and loud bolts of lightning. I got off the train at 7:30 and drove to my new apartment in Orem in this downpour...
The roads were splashed with so much water I couldn't see the lines painted on the road. Makes it hard to drive when you are staring at the sky watching the lightning!

My new roommate and I needed to pick up a few things at Walmart, so headed back out. After pulling out of the Taco Bell drive through it started raining again. By the time we got to Walmart it was another downpour.

Jake was nice enough to drop me off at the door. When he got inside the store he looked like he had just got out of the shower with water dripping off his head and covering his glasses, making them useless. Ironically, one of the things we needed was a shower curtain.

It rained again around mid-night. This was quite the storm, and much needed for our drought parched valley. CoCoRaHS shows Orem-Provo had 0.31 inches in at least one spot.

This morning, I looked out the window and what did I see? Snow on Mount Timpanogos above 10,000 feet!
