Before I ever experienced life in Idaho, I lived in a state where snow was a freak of nature, a once-in-a-lifetime event. That state was Texas - you know, the state that made national news because it couldn't keep its power grid on to keep its residents warm a few years ago. The same state that had no plan whatsoever for "snow" and icy conditions?

No kidding, there were shortages of everything including resources to make the roads safe to drive on. Fast-forward to my time here in Idaho and I am absolutely amazed at how prepared the city of Boise is for snowy conditions. I still get made fun of around the office for my continued (and ever-growing) fascination for the Lord's sawdust. The fact that no one around here has to live in fear when it snows a la Texas, makes it that much easier for someone like myself to fall in love with the snow.
