OK, how hot was it? The high was 71 on Wednesday, just short of the record of 73 for March 13, set in 1992.
Is it going to get hotter? Thursday's high could be 73. The record for March 14 is 75, also set in 1992.
How is our water supply? The dry January and February conditions have left reservoirs across Idaho at 70 percent to 90 percent of the average of the past 30 years. And the past 30 years were warmer and drier than the 30 years before that, says the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
So are we in trouble? Not yet. A heavy late-winter snowfall could get us out of the woods and provide reservoirs with ample supply to get most farmers through. Whitewater boating season could be shorter.
