Cottonwood News: ‘Snowballs from heaven’

On March 8, a very unusual occurrence happened in the Westlake area. If the conditions are just right, the wind will blow snow and roll it into snowballs like it shows in the picture. Some of these snowballs were about 12 inches in diameter. This is not something you get to see every day! The Lincoln Day Celebration was well-attended at Greencreek on Friday evening. Elected officials as well as those running for office were in attendance. People interested in electing good people to office who will care about the people they represent were also there. Everyone had an opportunity to talk to them and tell them their thoughts.

Dog Bark Park was recently ranked as the most unique bed and breakfast in Idaho by Hospitality Management Degrees. Owners, Frances Conklin and Dennis Sullivan, said they were honored and humbled by the honor. They are happy to bring widespread media exposure to Idaho as a travel destination to far-flung travelers, even international travelers.
