The National Weather Service in Boise has issued a Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow in the entire Treasure Valley... West central Idaho mountains... Boise Mountains... and Owyhee Mountains ... Which is in effect from 5 am Sunday to 5 am MST Monday.
Snow will begin in the pre-dawn hours Sunday and continue through Sunday and Sunday night. The Boise Mountains will receive the greatest snowfall... averaging 12 to 24 inches with local amounts up to 30 inches on west facing higher slopes. The west central Idaho mountains receive 12 to 20 inches. Gusty southeast winds to 25 mph will cause considerable blowing and drifting snow.
The Treasure valley is expected to receive between 6 and 12 inches. Gusty southeast winds 15 to 25 mph... gusts to 35 mph near Mountain Home... will cause some blowing and drifting but as the snow becomes wetter that hazard will diminish. It is possible that rain may mix with the snow in the upper Treasure valley Sunday night which would limit accumulations to about 4 inches. There is also a slight chance of freezing rain in the lower Treasure valley Sunday night.
A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow and blowing snow means that significant amounts of snow will make travel dangerous. Strong winds will also cause blowing and drifting of snow... and will limit visibilities. Only travel in an emergency.

Creator writes: December 15, 2008, South Waterfront neighborhood, Portland, Oregon. Looking from our condo we can see cars attempting, and most failing, to climb up a hill to get out of the neighborhood. I decided to put together a montage of sliding cars. Portland had a recent snowfall and we are expecting more tomorrow.

Enthusiasm for fast cars – really fast ones, the ones that can break the speed limit three times over with horsepower to spare – has always outpaced the ability to pay for them.
Doing their best to meet that untapped demand, supercar clubs have brought Ferraris and Aston Martins to those without the means or inclination to buy them outright, but the fees are still steep and the commitment substantial. Now, a variation on the supercar club idea promises a slightly more casual encounter with a supercar – or six of them

I have been told that even though it looks good enough to eat... it isn't.
I can't guarantee the safety of the little men guarding this house!
