Salt Lake City, Oscar and Snow

Copyright 2011, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Yes, the FHC library was open today, and since the weather prediction was for rain and icky, Becky and I decided we would rather be IN the library than in Tana or her van (which by the way, has a new name thanks to today's research, but you will have to read it on her blog - - )

It poured last night, rain, hard, for hours, and then it rained more.  But, it also snowed on the surrounding mountains.  Man reported to me that he had heard that it had snowed down to about 500 feet above the main valley floor around here.  Ok, it was not a lot of snow that low, but, it did dust around a bit.

The Capital Building and a dusting of snow on the hills behind it.
In the library Becky and I researched, we found stuff, a deed here or there, a probate here or there, wait till you read about Becky's probate find of the day.  (I'll be right back, I have to go smother my continuing snickers - - Ah hem, OK, I'm back.)

I found a deed indexed that read something like, "list of heirs of Mr. J".  I went, wahhoooo, before I went to find the deed, thinking I would have a nice document actually listing all the heirs.  Hope went springing thru the library.  And, hopes were dashed when I found the deed and found that one heir signed for all, but there was NO listing of the rest of the heirs.  Disappointment did a flat walk to the printer.  SIGHHH

Anyway, on the way out of the library, on the way back to the campground, Becky spied, well, look:

Thanks to the nice lady walking by that offered to take our photo, or you would only
be looking at Becky!  LOL
Well, I will say this, it has been a very different kind of Memorial Day for this gal.

Not everyone gets to see the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile, and so up close!
You have been very very lucky!

I love it. Okay so I am not as jealous of your deed find. But sounds like your day at SL was much more fun than mine at the FHC in Conroe. My grandkids would have loved seeing the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile. LOL what fun!

You girls are having way too much fun out there in SLC. The library, the snow, the bugs and now the Weinermobile.

SUCH a day! Quirky, frustrating, beautiful and a friend to share it with. Thanks for sharing it with us. Love the picture....

And I thought it was necessary to go to the Henry Ford Museum to see the hot dog mobile. I wonder how many of them there are?
