Boise, Idaho— A rare, quiet moment of quiet in the intense snowstorm that blankets the Great Basin has been captured on camera by a local photographer.
On January 20, 2018, an eerie storm, like no other in recent memory, swept across the state.
It was the first time since 1989 that a snowstorm has caused a significant snowstorm to sweep across the entire state of Idaho.
The storm brought up to 40 inches of snow, and in some places as much as 90 inches.
The conditions that brought the snowstorm were unlike anything Boise has ever experienced.
In fact, Boise is not only the home to a major ski resort but also one of the few places in the country where snow is actually falling in real time.
A snow storm in Idaho has never happened before.
The snowstorm was accompanied by a severe cold front that pushed snow and ice across the Great Lakes and into the state’s northwest.
The cold front brought up more than a foot of snow to the southern plains.
The warm front, which began in Southern Idaho and stretched across the rest of the state, brought down as much snow as it could in parts of Idaho and Montana, and it dumped an astounding 20 inches of the heaviest hail on the region.
That hail was the most severe in nearly 70 years.
The rain fell in parts in a span of five days, with a record amount of rain falling in just six days.
Snowfall in the region was even more remarkable than that, with more than 3.4 inches of total precipitation in some parts of the region, the most in the state in nearly three decades.
This storm, as it turned out, was a very unique snow storm that is now being called a “new record.”
While the record snowfall was still in the early morning hours of January 20th, a snow storm of that magnitude had never occurred in the Great Plains before.
Snowstorm conditions were not expected to persist into the evening hours, and that’s when the storm hit.
By the end of the day, the snow storm was at its peak and the temperature in the area was already dropping into the low 30s.
By midnight, the storm was moving into the snow and it had already caused some damage.
This was the biggest snowstorm in the last 40 years.
A few minutes before the storm began, the weather was very calm, with the temperature at just below freezing, and the wind was blowing at only 15 miles per hour.
This weather was typical of the weather that comes along every spring and fall.
It is a storm that usually lasts just a few days, but it has become one of those rare moments that has been caught on camera.
It’s a unique time of the year to see the Great West snow storm.
It can be challenging to capture the moment, but this one is special.
As you can see from the video, the snowy weather was definitely not for the faint of heart.
The footage of the snow is extremely powerful, with temperatures that can reach minus-50 degrees Fahrenheit.
The moment when the wind and rain hit is what makes the snow so magical.
And just like snow, it looks stunning.
The incredible snow storm is now part of the national record of the most snowstorms in a single calendar year.
This record was set in 2014, when a snow-packed storm brought down more than 6 inches of rain in the Rocky Mountains and in the heart of the Rockies.
It also brought down snow on the West Coast, with snowfall in Southern California and Washington state totaling more than 4 inches.
A total of 8.4 million people in the United States have been affected by a storm or a snowfall that reached more than 12 inches in some locations.
