While Idaho, especially southwestern Idaho, is still in a drought due to years of low snowfall in the mountains, things have eased this year. This was helped in part by late winter and early spring snowfall in the mountains, as recently as last week, that helped boost the snowpack that will provide irrigation water for Idaho’s farmers.
Check out these maps to see the difference between last April and this April, as of yesterday. We’re grateful for the good moisture this year, and are hoping and praying for more to come!
