Fog in Utah

Fog forms when the difference between air temperature and dew point is generally less than 2.5 °C or 4 °F.

Fog begins to form when water vapor condenses into tiny liquid water droplets suspended in the air. The main ways water vapor is added to the air: wind convergence into areas of upward motion; precipitation or virga falling from above; daytime heating evaporating water from the surface of oceans, water bodies, or wet land; transpiration from plants; cool or dry air moving over warmer water; and lifting air over mountains. Water vapor normally begins to condense on condensation nuclei such as dust, ice, and salt in order to form clouds. Fog, like its elevated cousin stratus, is a stable cloud deck which tends to form when a cool, stable air mass is trapped underneath a warm air mass.

My Bad
I thought JET SKIS were the cause of those high cost boating insurance rates
According to the US Coast Guard
Boating Safety Resource Center
OPEN MOTORBOATS are the culprit

Utah Lake Water Level Rising

Word from the Utah Lake Commission is that now is the time to let your legislators know how much you appreciate and enjoy Utah Lake and would like to continue doing so.  They will be deciding on funding for dredging very soon.  Please take a few minutes to send a letter to the Representatives & Senators below.  Other marinas are also being considered so our efforts & voice can really make a difference in their decision for Utah Lake.
