Things What Done Fell from the Sky: Boise's Earliest Snow

Boise, Idaho residents were shocked when large snowflakes drifted down in the late afternoon of October 11th. The snow covered branches and causes scattered power outages. It also caught people off-guard, barraging bicyclists and other pedestrians.

This was the earliest recorded snowfall in the area on record since 1898 (when records started being kept). The previous record was October 12th, recorded in 1969. By 10pm that night, nearly 2" of snow had fallen.
