The wind has been blowing strongly from the south through the mountains of northern Utah today, as we prepare to go from temperatures in the 70s to a 30-plus degree drop in temperatures overnight with our first big snowstorm of the year expected to hit on Friday.
But that pales in comparison to what’s been going on in the Northeast, with the superstorm Sandy and now a nor’easter having blown in while residents slammed by Sandy are still trying to recover from the original battering.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to our friends on the East side of the country.
This song isn’t about a storm like what the Northeasterners have been seeing on a too-frequent basis now, it’s a song about common people trying to make a living through tough times. That’s something many people have in common, regardless of where they live or what storms may come their way.
Here’s hoping we all pull out of our “personal storms.”
