Wishing You A Safe And Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, from all of us at utah.com. We hope you find peace and joy during this wonderful season.

Travel conditions should be good this weekend. The weather is expected to be clear and cold, with no precipitation in the forecast. Salt Lake International Airport should be operating at full schedule. Utah highways should be clear and dry and no problems are anticipated.

The Utah Highway Patrol will have extra officers on duty, attempting to dissuade people from drinking and driving, and engaging in other dangerous activities. The officers are also charged with helping those who have mechanical problems or other trouble while traveling. The Deseret News carried this news release from the patrol. Below is an excerpt.

"The past two years we have not had a traffic related fatality during the Christmas holiday weekend," the new release states. "Our number one mission is to continue that success for a third consecutive year."

Temple Square and other popular venues are ablaze with lights and offer music, nativities and other festivities.

Santa will be skiing at our ski resorts. Mrs. Clause will make an appearance at on some slopes. Most resorts received new snow a couple days ago.

Me, I'm heading to St George, where the temperature is expected to push into the mid 50s under sunny skies. I don't get all that excited about a white Christmas. My tradition is to hike in the red rock.

Merry Christmas!
