Glad You Asked: Weekend Edition



Dear GYA, Looks like the forecast for this weekend calls for a 70 percent chance of snow throughout the valley. Which means commuters shouldn't have much to worry about other than the 100 percent chance of SLC weathermen calling it the storm of the century. Anything to do this weekend before the impending "snowmageddon?" - Hillary Grotenburg, Sandy---   

Hillary, As we all know, 2 to 3 inches of snow equals a snowmageddon. But, anything above 3 to 5 inches is categorized as a snowpocalypse. Hopefully, our local weathermen won't make this common mistake. Here's what's up for this weekend. Let's start with Friday:
