Awoke this morning to three inches of fluffy new snow, arousing excitement in this household about possible skiing soon. However, we soon learned it was a localized phenomenon - Bogus Basin, where it’s 1 degree this morning, got only half an inch, and most locations around the city got less than an inch, though it was enough to cause a flurry of weather-related accidents during the morning commute. Here in the Boise foothills, it’s a snowy scene, enough to require shoveling - or, possibly, creativity: It’s so light and fluffy that one neighbor has brought out his leaf-blower to clear some of the snow from his driveway.
