It's full of promise, wonder and the unknown. Many Utahns are thinking about how they want to improve themselves. They may try to lose weight, finally start that novel they've been talking about for three years, build that shed or take up a new hobby.

Across the nation in 2011, we saw winter storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and earthquakes. Since late 2010, Utah has had two flooding events that led to Presidential Disaster Declarations. The Dec. 1 windstorm that struck Davis County knocked out power and overturned semitrailers. Since last week, Utah has registered 11 tiny earthquakes.
