I flew home from Charleston SC to Idaho on New Year's eve; fully expecting to see snow on the ground and slush covered roads. To my surprise, all the snow was melted and the roads were perfectly clear. New Year's day brought sunny blue skies and cold 30 degree temps. Perfect day to stretch the legs of the 981s that I thought was laid up for the winter! Had a nice hour long drive up the Payette River scenic byway above Boise. It was a good day!
