31" - 34" of Snow in Less Than 24 hours - A Valley Record?

We finally dug out from the walloping storm of a couple of days ago, got the keyboard dusted off and are ready to shovel through some current Ogden Valley issues. Stay tuned over the next few days as we break it up into bite sized chunks.

Dan Pope of Eyewitness News called the storm the biggest ever in 24 hours for Ogden Valley. He may be right - at least in recent history, which we'll call the last thirty years or so.

The Johnson's of Huntsville were the lead story on the 10 o'clock news whilst building their annual igloo. We all remember last winter - it never stopped snowing, but probably not 30+ inches essentially overnight.

Travel was tough for some and we read that the infamous Powder Mountain road was shut down most of the day and night and resort officials were not happy. Charles Trentelman offers his typically witty play by play analysis here. While the road closes many times each year, imagine what it will be like when (if) Powderville's unfettered development comes to be. Charles touched on the
the single steep road to the resort in today's issue as he discusses the water totals.

We hope you are all relaxing safely by the fire after some hard days of shoveling.

If you snapped some photos of the snow, please send them to and we will post what we can.
