Boise--Boise was hit by a surprise storm early this morning. The National Weather Service reported 2-3 inches of dry powder snow, the storm subsided by noon.

Morining rush hour traffic came to a standstill on I-84, there were a few accidents but for the most part motorists took the storm in stride. Businesses like the Idaho Farm Bureau scrambled for snow removal equipment but had sidewalks clear by noon. Cold temperatures could keep the snow on the ground through the weekend.
