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. Summer can be a little on the hot end of the spectrum, but fall and spring are basically the best weather. Idaho is simply a beautiful place to live and enjoy outdoor activities during those times of the year. Even summer is not that bad even when temperatures are a bit on the hotter end of the spectrum. Now when it comes to Idaho winters, it depends on how much snow and freezing temperatures the area gets. It can be a warmer winter where there is nearly no snow at all, or it can be a doozy of a winter sometimes. It is not always that bad. There are times where it is mostly sunny

If there is a single industry in Idaho that basically defines the economy, it is farming. Of course, this is one of the few obvious things a person can say about Idaho.

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. It is easy to just forget that these farms have any

Unfortunately, there are a lot of people out there that do not do the best job of maintaining their home and who forget certain basic parts of keeping things in good order.

Idaho is a gorgeous state which is fairly well known for its production of potatoes. However, less commonly known is its deep connections with another carb-heavy food; a small fruit called the huckleberry. Many Idahoans absolutely love this fruit, almost to the point of obsession.

We love the great outdoors here in Idaho. Whether you are flying down a speedway or fishing the Salmon River, Idaho is home for those who love being outside. However, what a lot of people tend to overlook when it comes to spending time in the great outdoors is the great outdoors just out your backdoor- your backyard. Backyards are an amazing part of our culture here in the west, but sometimes they aren’t given the credit they deserve, nor the time and effort needed to make them enjoyable for homeowners. Most homeowners will do something with their backyard, but not a lot, not to the point where they can enjoy it to its fullest potential.
