Snow, Thanksgiving and Christmas Lights

A big storm is moving over Utah right now, causing travel problems. Weather forecasters say it could get intense tonight before easing Wednesday. After the storm, temperatures will be really cold.

Some activities are being canceled today because the storm is expected to hit so hard. The brunt of the storm is expected later this afternoon and tonight. If you plan to travel tonight, double check to make sure your activity is still being held. Plan for extra time to reach your destination.

Here are just a few events that have been canceled: The University of Utah closed classes and many activities after noon today; Utah State University in Logan closed at 2 pm today. The Granite School District canceled district activities after 3 p.m. today, including sports, plays and a school board meeting. West Valley City is closing its offices at 3 p.m. and canceling a council meeting scheduled for Tuesday night.

Thanksgiving Day is a quiet holiday in Utah. Most businesses will be close. Ski resorts will be going full steam ahead, as will gas stations and convenience stores.

Many restaurants will be open and will offer special dinners. Some move theaters and other entertainment venues will be open. Most people that are not at restaurants or on the ski slopes will be at home enjoying family time.

Christmas Lights
Holiday lights will go on tonight at Trolley Square.

Temple Square will fire up its famous Christmas lights display at dusk on Friday. It is fun to be there as the turn on the lights, and the downtown area will be crowded. The lights will stay on through New Years Day, so people have plenty of time to see them.

Energy Solutions Arena and many other large businesses will have colorful lights.
