After several days of gorgeous weather, clouds have moved in over Coeur d'Alene, the breeze is kicking up and thunderstorms are threatening as the Western Governors Association gathers for its annual meeting, which starts today at the Coeur d'Alene Resort. Eight western governors will convene; nine had been scheduled to attend, but North Dakota Gov. David Dalrymple of North Dakota canceled at the last minute due to flooding in his state. First up for the governors today: A keynote speech from Boise State head football coach Chris Petersen, and a session on how western states can increase educational and career opportunities for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
