    Weather---it ain't what it used to be!

    Yep, we're all wet this Winter - and loving every minute of it.

    But, we see the writing on the wall. Wifey and I are considering selling our home - which has a lot of grass surrounding it. We figure it'll be our last home with a lawn. It's been nice having it, but that's where most of our water goes now.

    An option might be to stay put and convert your current yard to a dry land no mow yard.

    Or, put in native grasses.

    Yeah, let's talk precip.

    Have any of our friends been to Snowbird up in the Wasatch Mountains? It's had a record 718 inches of snow his year (so far). It's expected to top out at 800 inches. SLC leadership installed a huge gauge on the side of a downtown skyscraper with the snow depth shown in feet - it's at 60 feet today.

    Most of that will start moving to lakes Powell and Mead this Spring/Summer.
