If there is one thing about Idaho, it is that there are indeed four distinct seasons. Most of the year, the weather is delightful and sunny with a few scattered showers.

Now when it comes to Idaho winters, it depends on how much snow and freezing temperatures the area gets.

Farms are everywhere and there are more cows in the state than there are people. There are not that many more, but humans are still outnumbered. There are a bunch of other industries that are very important to the Idaho economy but none of them can really compare to the power and influence that is had by the farming community of Idaho. For most people, this does not really matter. A lot of the food and much of the animal products that come from the state stay in Idaho but a lot more gets exported to feed the rest of the country.
