The Bible says faith without works is dead. Should we really pray for snow and rain when we live in a desert? My memory is still fresh from a request by local church leaders to pray for less snow so that homes along the Weber River don’t flood. Heaven must laugh at us here in our earthly station as we pray for a mitigation of either drought or flood every second year.

Thursday, Oct. 25, snow packed roads caused numerous slide-offs on I-84.  Because of the slide-offs, several semis pulled over only to get stuck in the snow on the sidelines.  The road was closed for several hours to allow time for snow removal and clean-up.

Highway 39 through Ogden Canyon was also closed temporarily due to a weather related accident.
Morgan County was hit with more than six inches overnight.  Teachers who commute from Ogden were stuck in the canyon and buses were stuck in the snow, so Morgan Elementary and Mountain Green Elementary were both closed for the day.  This is a rare occurrence in Morgan, so students were thrilled and kids all through the county pulled out their sleds and made the most of it.
The first snowfall of the year is historically bad for driving conditions, which makes it especially important to slow down and drive carefully.

The return of warmer weather has resulted in the dams in the area flowing over their spillways.  This week Lost Creek, Echo, and East Canyon all began flowing over their spillways.  The cooler temperatures of the last several weeks have, so far, moderated the flooding effects and the rivers are below the peak levels of a few weeks ago.  There remains significant snow pack in the mountains, however, so continued warm weather or significant rainfall could cause flooding again in the county.  Emergency management director, Terry Turner commented that many in the county feel that the danger of flooding is past, but that concern still remains for the next several weeks as the snow continues to melt.

Waterfowl hunt starts Oct. 2

Don’t let the first two weeks of the duck hunt fool you -- plenty of ducks will wing their way through Utah’s marshes this season.
Despite good water conditions, the number of ducks that nested on marshes near the Great Salt Lake last spring was down 30 percent from 2009.
