SALT LAKE CITY — You know what they say, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."

A group of Salt Lake City skateboarders took that to heart after Tuesday's windstorm left them with a makeshift skate ramp in their own front yard.

Arianna Rees spotted the skaters using the concrete slab as a ramp after it was ripped off the sidewalk by an uprooted tree.

A few skaters were seen performing tricks on the ramp just before sundown Wednesday.

With so many parks across the region closed due to downed trees, these skateboarders found a way to keep on skating despite the circumstances.
