Where were you on the evening of August 22nd, 2023? If you were in Canyon County-- you may have absolutely no idea what we're hyping up here. If you were in the Boise area then you know exactly what we're about to explain.

Double Rainbows & Thunderclouds! Oh, and lightning!

On the heels of what many thought was just "talk" about a tropical storm hitting Boise, an intense thunderstorm did indeed hit Boise as some weather experts predicted after several days of rain following the West Coast tropical storm. Loud thunder booms and bold strikes of lightning had residents in awe.  All while rain flooded many areas in town--including the I-84 connector--and the whole thing was topped off by a massive Double Rainbow!

Take a look at some of these AMAZING photos from the August 22nd storm, below!

What. A. Storm.

As you could see from one of the photos, the Western Idaho Fair was impacted by the inclement weather--postponing a concert and shutting down rides for just under an hour. It's the images of this monster storm that Boise residents just can't get enough of--and we're here for it!
