11 reasons warm weather needs to come and stay


With temperatures expected to reach the 70s in Utah County this week, it might finally be warm enough to leave the house without an emergency jacket in tow. Here are signs you’ve been cooped up inside too long during these cold winter months — and that we can’t bear another cold weather relapse.

1. You have the heater on in the morning and the AC on at night.
