SUMMIT COUNTY — An interesting mix in the most-viewed story list for the past few days, with a water story in the number one spot. University of California researchers said they measured an astounding 18 percent increase in the amount of fresh water reaching the Earth’s ocean via rivers in a study covering a 13-year span, a clear sign that something is amiss with the water cycle. Naturally, a weather story about the first valley snow of the season also made the list, along with one of our morning photoblogs on searching for the last few patches of aspen color.
