Winter Is Here!

Winter has arrived to Salmon River country. At the top of the river, in Stanley, it has been quite cold. Last week a blizzard brought snow, but it was hard to tell exactly how much. The wind blew over 30 mph for 24 hours. Some spots in town were bare and others had three foot snowdrifts. I couldn’t sleep with the racket the wind made trying to take off my roof. The next day it warmed up and rained. The day after that it cooled off and snowed. And so it goes. Stanley, ID weather is unpredictable. This image is from the Sawtooth webcam. It shows what the 100 year round residents of Stanley experienced today. Well, 99 of them. I’m in Manhattan.
