More than 60 trees came down in my county between Monday and Tuesday, making teleworking, mail delivery, and other aspects of daily life impossible to pull off. In the Magic Valley, a brief snow break comes Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, before another storm system is expected to pass through on Tuesday.
Photographs of snow-filled front yards and tree limbs flooded social media Tuesday following a cold front that passed through southern Idaho. I heard that winds reached nearly 70 miles per hour in some areas of the Magic Valley on Monday.
This week marks the first time in several months that the Magic Valley will see evening temperatures dropping below 40-degrees. Frozen windshields, slick roads, and logs on the fire will all be routine additions to life for the next six months or so.
