I figured I would start a thread about Idaho since there is so much being posted and hijacking other threads.

It snowed again here yesterday. Got about 1 1/2 inches. My kids tried to build a snowman but they couldn't work well together and all the got done was a pile of snow. But my daughter was able to make a good snow angel.
Oh and its cold up here. It's 11 degrees this morning.

All of you SCM people who have moved to Idaho: Where did you land in ID and why that area? I have some family that has left southern Calif for ID in retirement; they like to fish and hunt (I do neither), and while I enjoy the outdoors/walking/hiking I'm not completely sold for some reason. Although it does sound more economical than California!

As well you should be. It is a horrible God forsaken place. The winters are long and harsh followed by what can only be described as deep mud season and then straight into fire season. If you are lucky enough to have a clear non-choking and barely breathing day during fire season at least that day you can actually see the wasps that have been biting and stinging you since mud season. That is followed by the rainy season or as it is affectionately called in other parts of the country as fall. It is pretty at this time, but that is open burning season so you just get more of the same breath choking smoke.
You don’t want me to even get started on the people or the driving habits by "those people" in their Subaru's. I suggest you stay away, it is just simply horrible up here.

I actually agree with goat for once . At least for north Idaho. I don't know much about southern Idaho but I heard Boise is a nice quite small town.

Goat, why do I think you're just trying to discourage more Californians from moving to Idaho?

Ten months out of the year look like this






The rest is pretty much what was already described but they forgot the inversion that keeps temperatures sub freezing with no sun for weeks on end leaving the roads undriveable except for those previous mentioned Subaru "people".

Best to stay in CA.

My sister got me this t-shirt for my birthday.

I'm bummed the website doesn't exist any more, I was curious to see what else they had.

Me too, Sportj. I just received this text. "Your ballot for the 2020 General Election was received and will be counted. Thank you for voting!".

I got a text that my ballot was counted! Wahoo! So anyone else who is waiting (after using the drop boxes) it took exactly one week.

MtnTeach - the ballot boxes aren’t third party. They are official county elections office drop boxes.

Dropped off mines directly at the post office, don't need a 3rd party. Ballottrax worked fine for me!

7:30 a.m. Tues - given to mail lady at Crestline Post Office
8:02 a.m. Wed - notified by ballottrax that my ballot had been received by USPS
1:16 p.m. Wed - notified my ballot had been received by SB Registrar of Voters

USPS worked fine!

I dropped my ballot in the dropbox at the Crestline library a couple of weeks ago, it took about a week for ballot tracker to notify me that my ballot had been received and counted.

Yes, I was so politely informed by the Big Bear Postmaster that putting anything in the box outside is no guarantee it will get processed. They even tried to extend that non-responsibility to the box inside the PO. So basically he was telling me my mail no matter where I put it, will maybe get delivered, depending on how the post office feels that day. Amazing.

USFS: Volunteers this past Saturday covered 488 graffiti tags, took out 5 illegal campfire rings and removed 187 pounds of trash along Deep Creek and Hesperia Falls.

The forest partnered with the @MojaveDesertLT and the US Army Corps of Engineers.

Great work volunteers! 🤝 [Click Here]

Sport, I believe the only couple I asked said 4 days but I'll text them and ask again. All were impressed with the tracking service.

I dod, however, use the indoor drop at the Post Office rather than an outside box.

Official Absentee ballot instructs us to go to SBCountyElections.com. I dropped mine on 10/17, it was received at the SB County registrar on 10/20.

Casadelgado - Did they say how long it took for them to show up as received?

Sportyj
Oct 21 : 03:19pm
Dave - ha ha I don't know why I assumed you dropped them off last Monday! Keep me posted if yours is updated any time soon.

We have 3 friends who used the drop box at the Library and they all have been received by the tracking. Dropping ours off tomorrow.

We mailed our ballots and got confirmation that they are where they need to be
