Thursday: Sundance, snow gods and SOPA

Well folks the snow is finally here, hopefully, right? The weather channels point to wintry fun and I do hope they are right. it has been much too long since I have gone sledding. It’s mid January and we have had only little spurts of snow dusting the ground so far.

Winter fest has been canceled, snowboarders have been grumbling and children all over have been clutching their sleds and looking longingly out the window..waiting..hoping for snow. Well, lets hope mother nature has heard our pleads and granted us a snowy winter at last.

In other news yesterdays SOPA blackout was a success so far and lets hope it continues to be and such hogwash in never passed!

Now on to the good stuff, today is the official first day of SUNDANCE!  I had so much fun checking out movies at our lovely local theaters last year and I cant wait to do it again. I have made you a handy guide of the local Ogden places to see films as well as places to go if you are new to Ogden. Have fun, be safe and most of all Love Ogden!
