Big snow flakes fell early Friday evening, turning Downtown Boise into a giant snow globe for people on their way home from work....
This is the earliest measurable snowfall in Boise since recordkeeping began in 1898, according to the National Weather Service. At 10 p.m., the Weather Service said 1.7 inches of snow had fallen.
The previous earliest recorded snowfall was Oct. 12, 1969, when a little more than an inch fell.
Right now global warming just forced me to put on a sweatshirt...we all know how brutal SoCal autumns can be.
