This morning as I was opening my office, which happens to be on the 7th floor of a rather tall building on campus, I looked out over the Utah valley. It was fairly early, so the sun was still rising over the valley. I realized that in most places, since the sun rises in the east, the sunlight spreads from east to west, correct? Well, because of the mountain range directly west of where we are, the sunlight actually ends up spreading from west to east.
What a backward place Utah valley is.
