Driggs, Idaho is about 3 and a half hours east of Twin Falls. In the grand scheme of things, it isn't far and if you are looking for a fun winter adventure, the 10th Annual Driggs Snowscapes sounds like a lot of fun.
This week marks the first time in several months that the Magic Valley will see evening temperatures dropping below 40-degrees. Frozen windshields, slick roads, and logs on the fire will all be routine additions to life for the next six months or so.
Heavy winds and an increasing chance for snowfall for the next 24 hours are forecasted for certain areas of southern Idaho. Another weather system is due to sweep through the southern portion of the Gem State early next week as well.
I have been here in Twin Falls almost 5 years and my first full winter in Twin Falls was Snowmagedon. 4 years ago we were in the midst of the snowpocalypse, the worst snow storm the area had seen in about 30 years according to people in the area.
