Skiers and snowboarders rejoiced, but a significant snowfall triggered some white-knuckle driving in the higher elevations of southern Idaho this past weekend. Mountain communities were measuring snow by the feet, while valley floors saw a few inches of snow, prompting more than a few families in cities to go sledding in a park or build the season's first snowman.
