Here Are 12 Ways You Know It’s Fall In Utah
Labor Day is over and you might think that it’s fall here in Utah. But maybe you’re not sure? In the Beehive State, it can by tricky to tell exactly when fall starts. Officially, fall starts on September 22nd, just a couple weeks from now. In case it still doesn’t feel like fall, here are a few helpful hints.
1. You find yourself spending a long time looking at goats, cows and pigs.
The Utah State Fair runs September 7th through 17th. Wear your shorts and t-shirts and bring your sunscreen.
2. Mother Nature starts teasing you with temperature fluctuations.
We have two or three days of 75-degree weather, then the temperature goes right back up to 90 degrees. It's definitely fall.
3. You wore these yesterday, but your feet got all sweaty and everyone was giving you funny looks...
...so you put these back on.
Wait til it snows, then you'll need the cute boots.
4. Speaking of sweaty, we know you want to wear those cute sweaters.
Resist the urge. Those are
winter clothes for Utah, not fall clothes.
5. It might not be time to dig out the sweaters yet, but you'll want to get this out of your closet.
It's hunter orange season in the Beehive State.
6. Halloween candy has arrived!
Sure, the holiday is still more than six weeks away, but you'll find these on every desk at your office now.
7. Pumpkin spice EVERYTHING.
For some people, this is good news...others want to throw up. Can you get that pumpkin spice latte iced? Because 90 degrees is kind of toasty for a latte.
8. Your power bill will go down...
...but your gas bill is about to go up.
9. You or someone you know is spending hours in a hot kitchen, canning vegetables, salsa and pickles.
When you're sitting in two feet of snow this January, that homemade salsa will taste pretty good.
10. Annual ski passes are on sale.
No, it's not going to snow for months. But now's the time to pick up your annual pass at a discount.
11. You'll want to visit this ski resort before it snows, anyway.
12. Utah's mountains are blanketed in beautiful colors.
Catch the fall foliage quick, because a blanket of snow will cover those mountains just weeks later.
