    Really, it's not supposed to snow here!

    Well, Ive been telling everyone that we don't get snow in the Treasure Valley - we have the good sense to keep it up in the mountains. I guess we must have run out of sense. 12" in 4 days. Unheard of!
    This is the most snow we've had on the ground in the 13 years I've lived here. I'm really getting tired of shoveling!

    Dear Rennie, Hi ,
    You need the exercise to keep that youthful zest and abs of steel!
    Thanks for the pictures, they are a lovely shade of white from my house.

    How far from Ketchum is that? I lived there for about 6 months many moons ago and they get plenty of snow.

    See thats what you get for bragging about it.

    You do know that Mother nature put it there. wait long enough she will make it go away. We've been lucky, only had to plow the drive once so far this winter and if we had waited a few days it would have went away

    That's pretty much how I feel when we get a snow like that in New Mexico. It is pretty tho...

    It is nice to look at - OK, I've seen enough.

    Ken, up till now I could see snow anytime I wanted to take the 20 min ride to the Boise front (similar for you, I'd guess). I love the snow on the mountains. I also love the be able to see the snow line on the foothills! When those two merge, that's when it can become troublesome.

    Fortunately, the temps climbed near 40 yesterday and most of the roads (major) are clear and dry. Not so for the local streets. In 13 years of living here I have never seen a plow on any of the local streets. They sand the intersections, but that's about it. We are supposed to get into the mid 40's by weekend, so things should change from snow to mud. Not sure that's an improvement!!

    We're hours, and several thousand feet below, Ketchum. Ketchum is next to Sun Valley (as you know). Snow is pretty much the only environment for 6 months out of the year there.

    Yes, I suppose my 'snow-bragging' days are over.

    Abs of steel?!! Me?!!
    Robert, if you like I can send you some snow! however, you'll probably have to refreeze it when it arrives. Now, as for that youthful zest - the LOML is the only influence left in my life that can still bring that to the surface. Snow just dosen't do it for me.

    Hi Rennie ,
    As long as the LOYL (love of your life) can keep some hint of youth alive there is hope.
    I did a Moxie Java coffee shop in Nampa, Idaho about 10 years ago. Built it here in Houston, had "Bekins" deliver it.My partner and I flew up to install it. Now that was a story to be told.
    Do you live near Nampa? I think it was Nampa? Maybe it was Napa, no...that is in California!
    Anyhow it seems it was about 20 minutes from Boise.
    I need to go on, have a good morning!
