Call me a wimp if you must, but it's been the coldest, snowiest winter I think I've seen yet since I've been in Boise. Snow has been on the ground for most of the second half of December and January, and temperatures have been in the 20s during the day. The kids have enjoyed the skiing and playing in the snow, but right now a Hawaiian vacation sounds just about right to me. The roads have been a mess - thank goodness for 4 wheel drive. At least, living in Boise (and not Wisconsin), I know that spring will arrive next month, LOL.
