It was great to be woken up last night by wind, rain, and even a bolt of lightning as a frontal precipitation system pushed through northern Utah.
This is fall, as it should be — blustery, chilly, and wet, with blowing leaves and a dusting of snow in the mountains.
Although it appears change is upon us, don't wax your skis yet. Accumulations have so far been minimal in this storm and the remaining snow showers this morning won't add up to much. A colder storm will bring some mountain snow showers Tuesday and Tuesday night, but nothing to get excited about. However, the trails should be tacky and the riding good as we approach the weekend, so keep the cardio up until the snow really flies.
