Since 1932, the Natural Resources Conservation Service has collected and published updates about snowpack, precipitation, reservoirs and streamflow in Idaho. This data in part helps the agriculture industry prepare for the coming months.

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.
