Jake Putnam took this very cool photo yesterday of the Idaho state capitol in our wintry weather; he titled it "Statehouse winter." After two and a half years of renovation, the capitol reopens to the public next Saturday, Jan. 9th, after a 30-minute rededication ceremony set for noon on the south steps. All are invited; there's more info here. Three days before the rededication, on Thursday Jan. 7th, Idaho Public Television will air a documentary, "Capitol of Light," telling the story of the capitol and its renovation; the program airs at 7 p.m. Mountain time, 8 p.m. Pacific, and re-airs on Saturday at 6/5 p.m.; more info here.
