Global News published this video item, entitled “Late winter wallop takes aim at the US this weekend” – below is their description.
just when we thought it was getting warmer, Mother Nature had something else in mind. A massive and very late winter wallop is hitting the U.S. tonight. Southern California has been blanketed with snow while Texas is being hit with tornadoes.
Some of the heaviest snow in years continues to fall in Colorado. Thousands of flights have been cancelled or delayed at Denver’s airport. The slow-moving storm caused Colorado’s governor to activate the National Guard.
There are blizzard conditions in Wyoming. In Utah people were trapped in their cars for hours after massive multi-vehicle accidents.
Jennifer Johnson reports.

The territory of modern Utah has been inhabited by various indigenous groups for thousands of years, including the ancient Puebloans, the Navajo, and the Ute. The Spanish were the first Europeans to arrive in the mid-16th century, though the region’s difficult geography and climate made it a peripheral part of New Spain and later Mexico.
Disputes between the dominant Mormon community and the federal government delayed Utah’s admission as a state; only after the outlawing of polygamy was it admitted as the 45th, in 1896.
A little more than half of all Utahns are Mormons, the vast majority of whom are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), which has its world headquarters in Salt Lake City. Utah is the only state where most of the population belongs to a single church. The LDS Church greatly influences Utahn culture, politics, and daily life, though since the 1990s the state has become more religiously diverse as well as secular.
The state has a highly diversified economy, with major sectors including transportation, education, information technology and research, government services, and mining and a major tourist destination for outdoor recreation.
A 2012 Gallup national survey found Utah overall to be the “best state to live in the future” based on 13 forward-looking measurements including various economic, lifestyle, and health-related outlook metrics.
