It snows for quite a bit of the year in Utah. Usually, the first snow of the year is in late October, and the last snow of the year is in late March, although snow in April is often an occurrence. Most central and northern Utah is built right up against the mountains (I mean closer than you would im…agine--we don't really have foothills, so it is valley and then you hit this huge mountain all of a sudden... a lot of cities are ON the mountain), so they tend to shade a lot of the valley from sun coming from the east that would normally melt the snow. We have had pretty mild winters the last few years--only a few major snowstorms, but usually there are quite a few per month. Snow melts off of the roads and sidewalks pretty quickly, but stays on the grass for quite a while. I hate snow, but sometimes it is nice because the temperature is almost unbearably cold during the winter on clear days and nights. The last snow this past winter was near the middle of JUNE... luckily it melted pretty quickly. ( Full Answer )

Although National Prohibition existed in Utah, the state favored Repeal in 1933. Nevertheless, a strong temperance sentiment continues to exist in the state. Before Utah officially enacted prohibition statewide, in 1917, small towns had already adopted anti-alcohol laws. St. George passed an ordi…nance prohibiting the manufacture and sale of alcohol. Although, as St. George and other small cities, realized that completely preventing people's drinking habits was not an easy task. Less than two months into the law, a group of young men snuck a five gallon keg of wine and crept out west of the city to indulge in it. After enjoying a large amount of it, one young man, being drunk, shot one of his buddies for no apparent reason. News of this traveled fast, and soon they were in court, three of them fined and the other two acquitted from lack of evidence. Illegal sell of alcohol products was also a huge problem throughout prohibition and before. Many illegal alcohol sellers were fined and put in jail, and that was just a taste of what was to come for in because of the ratification of the law of prohibition in 1919, which instituted prohibition throughout the whole country. Now, instead of having to deal with just a few minor cities, Utah had to attend to the entire state, and prevent all manufacturing and selling of alcohol. In 1923, a Utah attorney declared that drinking in some big cities in Utah was just as bad as it was before prohibition. Overall from 1925-1932, Utah uncovered over 400 distilleries, 25,000 gallons of spirits, 8,000 gallons of liquors, 13,000 gallons of wine, and 332,000 gallons of mash. Many local authorities did their best to keep Utah dry, but to no avail. Some were corrupt. Problems of enforcement and the unpopularity of prohibition led to action for its repeal. Franklin Roosevelt kept his pledge, and the nation soon began voting on the problem. Utahns voted on November 7, 1933, for repeal of national prohibition and in the same election also repealed the state's liquor law. Utah was the thirty-sixth state to vote for repeal and thus, delivered prohibition its death blow. -Peyton Mower ( Full Answer )

Are there many lakes in LA? As sports enthusiasts know, teams' locales are not forever, and when a team moves, the name often moves with it. Utah's pro basketball team originated in New Orleans, home of jazz; hence, Utah Jazz. Not willing to be NBA-less for long, New Orleans is now the home of the H…ornets, which relocated from Charlotte. . The LA Lakers came from Minnesota, Land of 10,000 Lakes. And Memphis' Grizzlies packed up and moved from Vancouver. In 1958, two popular New York baseball teams, the Dodgers and the Giants, moved to California: the Brooklyn Dodgers became the LA Dodgers, and the NY Giants are the San Francisco Giants. Willie Mays was one of the players who moved with the Giants, and on September 22, 1969, hit his 600th home run for his new/old team. And long-time Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda, whose birthday is September 22, 1927, made his major league debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1954. ( Full Answer )

The vast majority of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) in the years 1847-1910 traveled to and settled in Utah. At the time, converts to the church were expected to move to Utah if possible. They moved there any way they could afford - by foot, handcar…t, horse, or wagon until 1870, and typically by train after that time.
