MSR, tea is good, too! The porch can accommodate everyone's favorite beverage. In the summer we have a cooler with Kokanee over in the corner, otherwise everybody imagines their own drink!

Elousv, those are some impressive icicles! Maybe we can pick them, put'em in the freezer, and use them next summer to cool the Kokanee!

Guys, sorry I haven't posted a January 2011 Events thread--I'm on a BlackBerry again, and it's too hard to juggle info and links. But I'll do a February thread if I have regular computer access by then. In the meantime, if you know of any great Idaho January events, just post them here or in a separate thread. Thanks!

I used to be a tea addict, but can't handle the caffeine these days Just plain orange pekoe was my favorite. Plenty of good decaf teas, though.
Although I've given up asking for decaf coffee in NID restaurants and diners--those looks from the waitresses!!! Now I've joined the rest of the NID breakfast crowd and order regular coffee--it's rarely too strong, anyway. Reminds me of our old thread, You know you're a newcomer to Idaho when...you ask for decaf coffee!

Hey, all, I have landed a job in Kellogg, ID, at a medical facility there. My wife works at WalMart. She has called the Smelterville store and the Personnel lady there says there's almost no turnover of employees there.

Question for you that know the N. Idaho area well. Would it behoove us to move to Post Falls, Hayden or Couer d'Alene so she can look for work at the WalMart's in Hayden and Post Falls? Reason I ask is I called on a rental home in Post Falls this morning, and the lady working in the office said that she wouldn't recommend locating there to the west and driving back to Kellogg to work, because of the nasty icy winter driving conditions on I-90.

What do you all think? She's a local to the area so I felt I should respect her opinion. She said that they'll be moose in the road, accidents all over and I could get hit by a truck on I-90. I'd still be willing to give it a go but it spooked my wife real bad and she doesn't want to live now in those western panhandle towns. What'cha'all think about it?

It got down to -8 here last night...it's -4 now. Mexico sounds good.

Hi, and welcome to the porch! We had a thread not too long ago about commuting from Post Falls/CdA to Kellogg, so you should be able to find some answers there. Just do a search on Kellogg. If I remember correctly, the consensus was that it's a tough commute in bad weather.

That is what I recall about the commute. The latest is that we're gonna just rent a house in Kellogg, and my wife will just need to find work there, or in Smelterville. She doesn't drive, so we were thinking there'd be more jobs on the busline over in CdA and Post Falls. Really looking forward to returning to a land of green trees, I'm from the Seattle area and this scrub brush crap here in NE Nevada just don't cut it.

I think you're doing the smart thing, renting in Kellogg and getting to know the area. Plenty of people make the CDA-Kellogg commute, but only you can decide if you want to put up with it. The bad part (4th of July Pass area) is only 5-10 miles, and it's good, wide highway. It's also hilly and twisty. The highway crews do as good a job as possible.

Good luck and welcome in advance!
