SANDY CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – A wet commute made it slippery for many Utah drivers while they drove through rain, sleet, and snow.
“Can you even predict this any more?” said Tooele County resident Tasha Franco.
People who live in Tooele were some of the first to see Utah’s “Greatest Snow on Earth” Wednesday morning.
“I was not expecting it this morning, I woke up at 3 a.m. and my husband says, ‘It’s snowing outside.’ ‘No. It’s not,’ Franco said shaking her head. “It’s not cool Mother Nature, not cool.”
Like many residents ABC4 News spoke to, Franco was not prepared.
“I put all my winter stuff away, all of it. It’s packed up,” she said laughing.
Graupel fell fast and hard – covering Stansbury Park and Tooele parking lots and roadways.
Folks headed into Salt Lake City from their saw plenty of sleet and snow on SR 201.
Residents in Sandy City got a fair dusting of snow near Little Cottonwood Canyon.
Most of the roads across the Salt Lake Valley stayed wet throughout the morning.
Back in Tooele, Franco has one request for the Pinpoint Weather Team, make the snow go away so she can change her last name to Crisp.
“I have a wedding in two weeks, it should not be like this,” she said. “It’s my wedding in two weeks.”
Hopefully, all the bad weather will move on for her wedding.
The Winter Storm Warning is in effect until 10 a.m. Thursday.
