Found Him!
A few days ago, I posted about the disappearance of Marvin the Martian and his rocket ship from on top of WagonWorks on Chinden. Turns out, Marvin went home. He is in the yard of his creator. I believe the rocket was originally on the roof of Koppel's Brows...

Marvin has Left the Planet
Marvin the Martian and his rocket disappeared from the WagonWorks business in Chinden not too long ago. Does he have a new home? Did he leave our planet?

Think Spring
When Boise was a super deep freeze (below zero), several people posted an idea from Pinterst to paint flowers on the snow banks. It was a great idea, until the -10 wind chill sent me back into the house. Only one flower done!

Find the Fire Hydrant
The City of Boise has asked folks to dig out fire hydrants in their neighborhoods - just in case. About 18 inches of snow in most areas.

Potato Drop - Happy New Year!
Every year, a giant potato is "dropped" from a crane in Downtown Boise to kick off the New Year. Home versions of the "potato drop" are warmer and fun with friends!

This is What Zero Degrees Looks Like
The Boise River is still flowing, even in the ultra-cold.

No Sidewalks
Sidewalks impassable. Giant puddles and stacks of slush. This person was walking in traffic on Fairview Ave. Schools are back in session today after 5 snow days.

Ice Melt Shortage
The severe winter weather over the past couple of weeks has led to a shortage of snow shovels, ice melt, snow blowers - anything related to clearing a pathway.

Winter Storm Warning - Prepared
This person is ready for snow emergencies. After all the cars and trucks getting stuck recently, it's a good idea.

Boise Map History
Not exactly to scale, but fun to see for historical reference. These cartoonish advertising maps were free in the late '80s and early '90s.
