I paused and looked around, breathing in the faint scent of Mother Nature shaking out her nightgown. That’s when I knew. And that’s when I said, “#*@&!” Summer was gone. Regardless of what the calendar said, fall was in the air, with the gaunt figure of winter waiting in the wings. #*@&! again. Wasn’t it July just last week? Where had summer gone?

No, Geier didn’t pay some kid to shovel at the crack of dawn, and he didn’t hire a private plow service. He and his family were able to navigate even snowy mornings with relative ease thanks to a heated driveway, which melts snow as soon as it hits it. “It’s a classic example how you c...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-582793462014-09-12T17:44:25.974-06:00" id="#license-2014-09-12T17:44:25.974-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Autumn will officially begin soon. It’s not so bad. There’s football, burning leaves, carving jack-o-lanterns and the new TV lineup. As they go, fall is one of the more tolerable seasons. Unfortunately, it doesn’t stay autumn for long. Fall eventually becomes winter, and winter around ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Memories of the polar vortex and relentless snowstorms won’t soon be forgotten. And the editors of the publication are predicting more of the same for the coming season. “Shivery and shovelry are back.
