Windstorm Preparations

Big Kaysville Snowflakes

It is 4:30pm in Kaysville and I have never seen such big snowflakes. According to the forecast, several inches of snow have fallen in the Northern Mountains, and there’s been plenty of snow in the lower elevations as well — I can vouch for that.

Kaysville City Conservation Charge

At the invitation of Mayor Steve Hiatt I brought this to the attention of Kaysville City Council five days later. From Kaysville City minutes of 1 June 2010: Richard Willoughby stated that […]
