One of my favorite things about Boise is the climate. We usually get four distinct seasons, and rarely get extreme weather. (It gets above 100 maybe a half-dozen times in a typical summer, and doesn't go into single-digits very often in winter.) Just the same, I wouldn't complain if winter were a month shorter, and either spring or autumn were a month longer. (Yeah, I know... some people are NEVER happy!)
I'm looking forward to springtime. The longer, warmer, drier days that are on the way.
Wednesday was a surprise - mid afternoon, folks in the office crowded to the windows to check out the heavy snowfall - big beautiful fat snowflakes! It was beautiful - like a Christmas snow-globe! It melted off quickly. Thursday morning a powdered-sugar coating remained on the foothills northeast of town... but it will quickly recede, as well.
