No self-respecting groundhog could break through the frozen snow in Tremonton Utah–it still snows each morning. Does that mean if groundhog cannot see his shadow there, we get an early Spring? Just how does this really work?
With all that snow, we don’t want it to melt all at once, we are on flat ground and there is no where for the water to go–except into the basements along the road. Many drains in or city are just holes in the ground. The water fills the hole and eventually seeps into the ground. With 7 inches of rain a year there is no problem–but when we get almost 20 inches every year running–WOW!
Where will the water go? Our sewer collection facilities are being enlarged. In time for winter melt? Your favorite genealogist, Arlene Eakle http://arleneeakle.com
