April Conference: Expecting stormy weather

Stormy weather conditions usually prevail at General Conference time in Salt Lake City.

Since the Mormons came to settle in the Salt Lake valley, the atmosphere tends to be rather unsettled, especially at the April sessions.  Conference goers expect storms to be hanging around, sometimes rain, sometimes even snow.

An interesting survey of General Conference weather trends was conducted several years ago, published in Deseret News.

Researchers found that April sessions of General Conference tend to be stormy and overcast, with measurable precipitation 64% of the time.

In keeping the tradition, today on Thursday 2 Apr 2015, it is raining and light snowing throughout the valley.  The National Weather Service for SLC has issued a "hard freeze warning" for tonight.

  That will be the end for our spring flowers.
