Snow in Boise

Boise is the capital and most populous city of the U.S.State of Idaho as well as the county seat of Ada County. Located on the Boise River, it anchors the Boise-Nampa Metropolitan area and is the largest city between Salt Lake City and Portland.As of the 2010 census, the population of Boise was 205,671. It is also the 99th largest city in the U.S. by population.
My daughter Bhavana lives in Boise along with her husband Rohit and two charming daughters Mira aged 7 years and Nandita aged 3 months. In December they had heavy snowfall and I am posting some pictures snowfall in and around my daughters house there. Boise had received some of the heaviest snowfall of recent times.

  1. I had no idea Boise was that large, 99th in rank. Your photos show that it still has a bit of small-town atmosphere, though.

  2. We too are seeing extreme weather. Yesterday our temperatures reached coldest levels in history. Wish I could photograph our snow as well as you did Boise. By the time I can bear to go out with my camera the snow will have melted:)

  5. The snow always looks so pretty Ram, but living in a warm climate I can't even begin to imagine the temperatures being experienced over there.

  7. I have enjoyed all of your photos of Boise! It doesn't surprise me, though, that Boise can get a lot of snow. I find these pictures and the snow lovely to look at, but not in person! :))

  12. You DO have snow pics; wasn't I just wondering that? Google will turn them into gifs!

    Boise has a lot of snow right now, that's for sure. We don't have any in western Oregon.

  15. I absolutely love your snow photos, and congratulations on your new granddaughter! It is very cold, windy and there is ice everywhere here in Montreal, making a short walk a dangerous thing.

  16. It is worse in many places.A friend of mine is stuck midway from Chicago to her place.The roads are full of vehicles covered in snow along the sides.They are inching at 15 miles per hour.The snow storm with chill wind is the worst in the recent years.Flights are affected and schools in some parts closed.Pretty scary
