how's the traffic like from Daybreak, south jordan to SLC during rush hours? also, does it really snow every single day during winter time? how do you drive through snow if it does? and what do people normally do when the car that needs to be driving to work is covered with snow in the morning?

I can't tell you about the commute time, as I don't live in Salt Lake County, but no, it doesn't snow every day in the winter...although it may seem like it at times, especially with this past winter. You just learn to drive in it. Drive carefully, pay attention to what you are doing and don't do anything stupid. It really isn't that difficult. If you wake up in the morning with snow on your car, you whip out your trusty snowbrush and start brushing the car off. You could always buy a house with a garage and you won't have that problem.

There were a couple times this winter where cars needed to be dug out. I was never late to school in the winter either. Now I work downtown and if I'm driving, I leave at 8:15 to get downtown by 9AM. When I take Trax though, I leave at 7:40-7:45 and get on Trax at the 10000 South station by Jordan High School to get downtown by 9AM.

It's a city or a million people. I suppose it is busy. I wouldn't know as I commute the other way. And no, it doesn't snow every day. It snowed about every three days this January but Utah also had extraordinary snowfall this year. How to drive through snow? Slow. I take it snow is a foreign thought to you. Salt Lake County does a great job of snow removal though. What to do with your snow covered car? Um, brush it off.

He was asking about the snow because we get more snow here on the bench than the rest of the valley due to the elevation difference. It was a valid question.

The drive from Daybreak to Salt Lake (Downtown) is anywhere from 35 minutes to one hour. It largely depends on what type of traffic you hit and accidents. It doesn't snow every day in the winter, and usually it is only the storms during the morning/evening rush that cause the problems. Drive slow, and make sure you have good tires (don't try to drive on bald tires). Make sure you have a brush and ice scraper during the winter months - if your car is not covered in snow, the windows will have ice on them. Snow removal is generally very good. During the winter, I make sure to watch the weather regularly to know if I need to leave early for work.
