Yesterday, 1/27/2007 in SALT LAKE CITY, UT: 31 high, 9 low (more of the same)
It may be colder where you are and I do realize it is colder in many places, BUT our air does move, is inverted (a picture shows how thick the air is!) because of a high pressure that isn't going anywhere. Day after day the mountains and sun are obscured and the air feels colder than the temperatures because of condensation from the snow. We are on day 16 of at or below freezing and will approach the record of 24 days before there is relief. We need snow, we desperately need snow. The mountains are bereft. We need the snow for tourism and for drinking water. So, there you have it...why this is so 'bad'.
