Was the earthquake before or after the virus? It was after the virus but before the blizzard.
We can all agree that 2020 has not been our year thus far. It’s been a pretty bizarre string of unfortunate events. We’ve faced a global pandemic in COVID-19, an unsettling 5.7 magnitude earthquake, and now we’ve got to prep for a blizzard that might dump 6 inches of snow on us.
From the National Weather Service SLC office:
Multiple storm systems will move into the region late tonight through Thursday bringing widespread precipitation across mainly western and northern Utah as well as southwest Wyoming. Below average temperatures will accompany this storm cycle. The first storm will push its associated cold front into far northern Utah late tonight and this front will stall across the Wasatch by Wednesday night. The second storm will intensify this boundary Wednesday night into Thursday resulting in more intense snow rates and significant accumulations in the mountains as well as in some valley and bench locations, most likely in the SL and Tooele valleys.
Stay safe, healthy, grounded, and warm out there. We will get through all of this and have great stories to tell our grandkids.
