    This is horrible news.

    Hopefully the climate change can be deferred for another 5 or 6 days.

    No snow in Utah means no skiing in Utah. It also mean no snow pack in Utah which means no reservoirs in Utah which means no irrigation in Utah which means no agriculture in Utah. No Irrigation in Utah will also mean no golf in Utah. No golf means no doctors, lawyers and businessmen.

    So, without skiing, doctors, lawyers, businessmen and agriculture, Utah is going to become a ghost-state.

    It wouldn't be the first time, right? Didn't most of the Ancient Pueblo migrate out of the area because of climate change?

    You are welcome. I figure this is probably the only thing that is going to get the church to abandon its comfortable multi-billion-dollar investment and head back east to Jackson county. It is probably the fulfillment of prophesy.

    We are talking about climate change. How do you know we won't get more rain? I have a lovely fossil at home of a fern from a tropical rain forest. I found it while hunting in Utah.

    I assume California and other states would be effed as well? No biggie, we'll invade Canada, they have plenty of room up there.

    Good point. Rain, snowmelt, I assume reservoirs accept all types of "moisture".

    Well I hope you are correct. I would hate for the Mormons to pick up and move to Jackson county. That kind of prophetic fulfillment might lead me to believe I had seriously effed up.

    Good point. This is why I picked up my Canadian citizenship a couple of years ago.

    Becoming Canadian, starting the Mormon Poetry movement, starting the Mormons acting gay trend (trading hummus recipes?? Seriously gay), calling Obama in 2006, and getting rich as a day trader. All examples of where I have acted on long term trends before everyone else hopped on. I am a culture prophet!

    Become Canadian? Hell no, I was thinking more along the lines of "annexation".

    I want an explanation here. I'm with Robin on this one, it seems to me snowpack would be vital to water supplies in late summer. If you only get rainfall in the winter, the resevoirs fill initially but in the normally non rainy season of July/Aug aren't you in big trouble?

    My first thought as well. Propaganda for the Ski Colorado campaign.

    Quick update: we are now in Utah. As I sit here typing and looking out the window, I feel safe in saying that the ksl article may be a bit off.

    My kids are going bananas at all this snow dumping on the ground.

    I am going bananas at the thought of skiing this week.

    We have over a foot on the ground and the snow is still coming.
