As snow continued to fall, Mark Thomas stopped to make a photo of his daughter, Elektra, next to an impressively large snowman that was close to twelve feet tall in the front of a yard on 2300 East near 3300 South, Sunday December 22, 2013.

After northern Utahns get through a potentially bumpy weather day Sunday, it should be clear-sailing the rest of the holiday week.
The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City said there’s a chance of more snow and freezing drizzle Sunday evening.
And while Monday is expected to be cloudy, Sunday officially marks the final day of the latest wintry blast.
By Wednesday — Christmas Day — sunny skies and temperatures above freezing for much of the state will be on tap.
The air quality was listed as "yellow" or moderate through Tuesday across most of northern Utah.
For those hoping to take advantage of the fresh powder Sunday, backcountry skiing conditions were expected to be downright dangerous, the Utah Avalanche Center said.
For the Uinta Mountains, the avalanche danger was at a "red" or high level. For the rest of Utah’s northern ranges, the risk of avalanches was considerable.
Moab’s range had a "moderate" risk.
