Re: Odd weather here

Depends on where in Idaho. Here, downtown Lewiston is 750 feet above
sealevel. Not much snow & usually melts off in a day. We have had as much as
several feet, more usually a couple inches at a time. Most winters we get a
couple of weeks when it stays frozen. The rest of the time it's freeze/thaw
cycles mid November through mid March. Up in the mountains, it's another
story. Some peaks are seldom without snow. We hope for at least 8-15 feet
snowpack in the high hills to provide water for the summer and reduce
wildfire danger. The high prairie also needs snow cover through the winter
to protect the winter wheat & other fall-sown crops.
