Twas a Hot, Uneventful Summer—Weather-Wise While it lasted, the summer of 1971 -was dry, hot and relatively 'calm.- ' :. .Having begun three weeks early,, the .trailing edge of the season..was chopped off the • . third'veek in.August From then until' autumn was . born,: summer -was: .a watered i down version of the real ; thirig. Mother Nature warned Northern .Utahns of what-was to come when, on the last 'day offspring—June 21—she turned on the heat sending the mercury to 98 degrees in Ogden. From then'on, until a mild cool front hit".on' ; Aug.' 23; it was more of-'the. same with .very little rain to break the- .monotony. • ...-'• • In fact, from late May until Aug. 8, only a few. sprinkles of •rain: 'disturbed the region's -dust. There was one downpour in mid -June. On that August day, however, the first real storm of summer hit, coming within a raindrop of being a cloudburst. Ogden was doused by .91 of an inch of rain , . .that,gushed-from the.sky In 15 . minutes.. ' . The.. season's single, big " . windstorm" was more than 'enough. It denuded trees' of their fruit and cut capers with signs, 'windows and power lines, rocking the whole area for several hours on July 18-19. During June, July and most of • August, the mereury remained in the lower to middle'90s but despite the heatand lack of rain. there was no appreciable -in-, crease "in either . municipal- water use ':or s electrical:power. ..'"; - ?W. Franklin'- Richards, city waterworks'superintendent, said; while water usage rose, the increase wasn't "a great deal" since Pine View 'water was turned on early. "There were, a few .high bills due ;to,'excessive watering" but compared to last .year the increase wasn't great, he said. E. Lynn Foley, district ' manager . for Utah Power & - Light: .Co., said there was "no . .unusual power drain during the -'. summer to myknowledge." u- ; He said : the company ex: perlenced ,an "average ; growth rate, as in the past few years." 'Following .the rain of Aug. 8, temperatures warmed again, reaching highs' between 90 and 95 with lows in the middle 60s. • Then, on Aug. 29, a . 2-inch rain hit, flooding basements, clogging city drains and flowing into several buildings at depths up to 18 inches. After another .29 of an inch that fell on Sept. 6; the rainfall . for summer -ended—and so did the season. ' - ' . The official end came on Sept. 23, but many residents reported that '(fall was in the air" as long ago as Aug. 23. Mother Nature again: played tricks on Northern Utah-in the past week—and without warning: Inclement weather began Thursday and by late Thursday night and all day Friday, Northem 'Utahns were, reeling under a heavy blanket of snow. Some areas receive over six inches of the white cover on the ground. Ski resorts cheered as heavy snowfall brought a prom, ise of openings within a few weeks. '.'.' Weather forecasters say there will be a respite from the win•try weatherwith clearing and blue skies in the offing. BASE HELICOPTER PICKS UP ILL, STRANDED GIRL '.

' After that date, according to a resolution approved in an Ogden session on Sept. 24 the use of studs of metal,: ceramics or other materials will be prohibited. At least"one.Ogden tire firm reports that studs can be removed from tires and expects to offer this service to auto owners prior to the whiter of 1972-73. To put it .plainly—you can use your studded snow tires this winter and no longer. The resolution implies that the studded, tires can't be installed until Oct. 15. • However, the early heavy snowstorm of the past week prompted officials to allow the studded tires.immediately. Commissioners approved the. use----o£ studded tires in a, resolution passed on March 11, 1966, with the stipulation that it could reexamine the use of such tires-in-the light of additional'studies .and tests. Preliminary reports in 1970 .-prompted ; the commission to rule on Dec. 18 that studs could he used only between Oct. 15 and April 15 of each'year. Further test in which the state, participated indicated that damage occurring to highways by studded tires "is.greatly .in excess of any reasonably contemplated benefit" derived from their use. Commissioners said tests indicated that the studded- tires were beneficial under conditions that exist only'one per cent of the time. • • ;.
