Another storm moves in Sunday night into Monday morning with another inch or two in the valley. Clear and cold Monday night and Tuesday, then unsettled again heading into March. Winter is still with us!

This is the actual balloon that "Oz, The Great and Powerful" flew in the Disney movie of a few years ago. It is one of my favorites at the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic.

We’ll be heading back into winter weather for the rest of the holiday weekend. A cold front will move across southwest Idaho later today and tonight. Snow will increase in the mountains, with 2-6” up to 6000’, and 8-12” or more above that. For the Treasure Valley, mainly rain showers and breezy today, then rain and snow showers tomorrow. Much colder through early next week, the coldest weather since December in what has been a fairly mild winter so far.

Lunch for Literacy for the Learning Lab. Nice spread, lots of great people, and the guest speaker is one of my favorite authors, Camron Wright. If you haven’t read “The Rent Collector” or “The Orphan Keeper”, I strongly recommend both books.

Too many clouds this evening to see the Full Blue Super Moon rise, although it’s been peeking through the clouds as it gets higher. Blue cuz it’s the second full moon this month, and Super cuz it’s extra bright. Now we have a total lunar eclipse early in the morning (Blood Moon cuz of the reddish color). It peaks between 6 & 7 AM. And you don’t need special glasses!

Snow has been falling in the Treasure Valley this morning, but hasn’t been sticking much, and is already starting to change to rain in some places. Near 40 today but near 50 Sunday & Monday. Several inches of snow in the mountains. Perfect conditions for McCall Winter Carnival!

So how did you spend your morning? I spent mine in the company of some local and world renown jazz greats interviewing them for Boise Music Week’s upcoming 100th anniversary. With Kevin Kirk, Curtis Stigers, former Gov. Phil Batt, Billy Mitchell & Bill Cope.

Dense fog around the Treasure Valley this morning. But it will lift soon and we’ll be warm today and tomorrow - near record highs in the 50’s! Winter returns Friday with colder, snowy conditions.

One year ago today - Brrrr! My back still hurts from shoveling the relentless snow. Snow was over a foot deep in many parts of the valley.
