Freezing Rain

Posted on January 25, 2013

We’ve had some unusual weather here in Salt Lake City today . . . freezing rain. Apparently this is only the 10th time since 1940 that we’ve had freezing rain and today accounted for the most accumulation of freezing rain since 1983. When I lived in North Carolina while attending law school we had our fair share of ice storms and freezing rain. However, I’m just not used to seeing it here in Utah. It’s twenty degrees out and it’s raining!

Of course, the freezing rain is creating havoc on the roads. There have been countless car accident and tangled commutes. Here’s an article from the Salt Lake Tribune describing the weather.
