Every spring storm, I'm curious to know of how much damage was caused to the fruit blossoms because of the cold. Can you direct me to a source on the Internet?

I would also like to know of an Internet source where to find up-to-date water pack information.

Good question, this took some thinking. It's hard to quantify what damage happens every where. While one county may have an overnight freeze another place would be above freezing. Your best bet is to get in touch with the Utah State University extension offices. The link is on the right. They can usually tell you what kind of damage goes on with some of the local plants and are very knowledgeable in local agricultural practices.

Water data can be found using the US Department of Agriculture pages. The link is on the right. You can get a ton of info here. You can find snowpack information for the whole state and it's updated weekly. You can also download graphs and tables of other water and snow info, there's a lot here.

Happy reading!
