That is one heck of a rocket ride from extreme cold to extreme heat. As far as I'm concerned, what we experienced this year is a worst-case scenario — very cold in January to very hot in June. If we could switch that around, life would be far more enjoyable. A mild January is still just fine for skiing, and the colder it is in June (and July), the better. Shorten summer as much as possible.
January really gets my attention as it is one of the most anomalous months that I can recall in Salt Lake City. In fact, it was the coldest January in Salt Lake since 1949.
