Utah went from a super-warm and dry winter to the wettest May in recorded history. But then summer hit.
Hot and dry.
But, as I noticed driving about to run errands a couple of days ago, a lot more people have been following the local water guidelines than in past summers. All around, the grass is greenish-brown, as people water just enough to keep the grass from dying completely. I even passed a cemetery that was far less than lush. And that's good.
Brown is in in SLC.
