I’d be willing to bet that most of us love this time of year. It isn’t too hot outside and the pollination hasn’t begun to destroy our health every time we step outside. That being said, I think we need one more really good freeze in Idaho to make the upcoming months better.

Why We Need Another Deep Freeze in Idaho

My ideal outdoor situation is sunny and 75, but I’d be OK if over the next few days we got a really deep freeze and maybe even some snow. I do love this time of year with the boating and yard sales. It isn’t that I miss winter or want to play in the snow, but I think a deep freeze would really benefit us in the long run. The reasons we need a nice chill are listed below:

We know that mosquitoes and other flying bugs don’t like the cold weather, so even if the freeze didn’t kill them and their larvae at least they wouldn’t be flying around and being a nuisance.

I’ve already seen more spiders this spring than I wanted. Maybe a quick freeze will force them back into their dark hiding holes for a little bit longer. This idea goes for snakes too.

My car is an oven when it heats up since my AC is broken, so I’m good with cooler weather since the heat still works.

If my in-laws see this, then just kidding. But in reality, we aren’t ready for people to come and visit us, which they only do when the weather is warmer.
