Maybe the warming is global, but here’s a little more evidence that it isn’t local.
We woke up yesterday morning, September 29, to the earliest visible snow. We’ve lived in southwestern Utah for 14 autumns now.
And yesterday morning there was snow on the north-facing cliffs of Kanarraville Peak. Quite a bit of it: we’re about 10 miles away, so I’d say there had to be several acres covered in white.
We’ve had early snowfalls before: September 30th right here in town about 10 years ago, and October 9th last year. But other years, we’ve waited until mid to late November.
