February's final act

The last day of February is a vision of white caps on Lake Coeur d'Alene as high winds whip the falling snow near the boardwalk on the north shore. There seems to be little chance that March will come in like a lamb tomorrow.

RIP Senator McClure

Jim McClure served Idaho for 24 years in Congress and the US Senate. He passed away over the weekend at age 86. In September 2008, he was a guest at the Women in Red Luncheon where we enjoyed a brief visit as he signed copies of his latest book. What a gentleman and a true public servant.

Robins of Winter

The Arctic chill and accompanying snow storm brought about 20 robins to seek shelter in the trees and shrubs around our Post Falls home on Thursday. The sight of the birds made me wistful for springtime. More photos of our red-breasted visitors HERE.

Groundhog Day, Idaho style

Marty Marmot, Punxsutawney Phil's Idaho cousin, didn't see his shadow today so it looks like an early spring!
