How cold is it, Utah? So cold you may have to chisel the dog off that fire hydrant, tree trunk , lawn jockey statue or yard gnome figurine.
Early Wednesday morning the mercury slide to -5 at Mirror Lake, and -2 readings were recorded at both Randolph and Bear River in northern Utah, while southern Utah's Bryce Canyon hit -1. Higher elevations of the Wasatch Front also shivered, with Alta at 1 degree above zero, and Heber and Park City coming in at 4 and 5 degrees, respectively.
But that wasn't the worst of it. The region also endured winds of 10-20 mph, so factor in a "feels like" wind chill that would make near-zero readings feel like -15 or worse.
