Calling Noah

The rains continue this morning and I'm wondering if it is time to start building an ark.  Here are a few of the bigger 48-hour precipitation totals over the northern Wasatch Front for the period ending at 7 PM last night as reported to the National Weather Service.  This is before the overnight deluge.

Logan Airport: 1.18 inches
Brigham City (4400 ft): 1.88 inches
Ogden Airport: 1.26 inches
Bountiful (4760 ft): 1.51 inches

For the 72-hour period ending this morning at 7 am, the Salt Lake Airport has received 0.52 inches.  That's not all that impressive, but it appears to be one of the drier areas in the Salt Lake Valley (as it often is).  A few sites along the upper east bench were near a full inch before the rains last night.  

For you gardeners out there, the next few days will offer up the best weeding and tilling conditions of the year.
