This is our first winter in Utah as a family. I lived in Utah Valley from 2000-2005, and then moved away. We moved here to the south sandy/north draper area in May of this year. So far, we are disappointed with the lack of snow, we were looking forward to sledding, snowman building, etc. Is this normal for SLC, or is there usually more snow on the valley floor by now? My husband has never spent a winter here and I have never experienced a winter in the Salt Lake valley, so just wondering I know that winters differ, but I am positive there was more snow when I lived here before......

Hang in there, Calibelle. November and December are generally much less snowy than January, February and March. Rest assured, you'll see plenty of snow before the coming of spring.

I have lived in SLC for 10 yrs and this is the driest winter I have seen yet. One year, my neighbor's kid made $60 just in Dec. by shoveling my driveway/sidewalks.

That's good to know! I know that January and February... I always got dumped on with snow in Utah Valley. But I was pretty sure that this was a dry winter so far :P

My 3 year old keeps getting so disappointed. We will get an inch or two over night, and it's melted by 11 a.m. All she wants to do is build a snow man

Yeah, I'll bet you dollars to donuts that January through March will will be getting hammered, so don't lose faith just yet. The majority of it starts hitting us around mid January and if my guess is correct it won't stop till mid April this year. No worries just yet. I just wish the inversion situation was something that could get gradually better, but I'm sorry to say it is beginning to appear as though it is an issue which is going to worsen, not let up. We're going to be labeled New LA at this rate

It is like rain, and right after you wash your car it rains !!!

Same with snow. You talk about it and then it comes and stays like an unwelcome visitor.

Just be careful what you wish for ...

Keep in mind, snow is like a bunch of elephants.
Nice to look at, but really messy to clean up afterwards ...

Yes it is a very very (unusually) dry winter. There is usually a lot more snow in SLC by now. In fact, most of the country is hurting for snow.
