Idaho (well, mostly Boise) seems to pop up lately in a lot of best of locations across the United States. There have also been quite a few times our state made the news for not so great news.

    Millions Of Bees On The Highway

    When the news is 'everyone is getting stung' you know it's a great news day. That's what happened last year when 14 million bees got loose when their delivery truck tipped over.

    Bonus thought - remember in the Wickerman when Nick Cage gets stung by the bees. Good times.

This family put up with snakes invading their home for 3 months before they called it quits and abandoned the place. Apparently the only one who can actually live there is Satan.
