For those who are considering moving to the area, yes the snow can and does come in any given month.

The picture I'm including was taken at 0700 this morning in my backyard.

Talking I love snow!

Beautiful picture, Cleosmom!

I don't currently live there any longer, but I lived 7 years in Jackson, WY (my most very favorite place). I moved away last September.

One of the reasons why I moved was because of the looooog harsh winters.

A couple of the reasons why I'm considering moving to Idaho Falls is because (a) it's close to Jackson and (b) it has 4 distinct seasons. Someone said, everything that Jackson gets, IF gets also (just less of it).

I'm not sure if you know anything about Jackson's weather; but if you do, do you find that statement to be true?

Thanks,
Sharon-Marie

Default IF weather v Jackson

Seems in general like IF is about 10 degrees warmer than Driggs/Victor, Jackson. If you liked living in Jackson you'll probably really like living here. We like it here b/c we are close enough to go visit Jackson, Tetons, Yellowstone, even for a day, but the weather does seem to be a bit milder here and there are more services.

. . . And all of that makes for a great place to live, it would seem.

Thanks for your post!

Cleosmom, it is July 3rd. Imagine my alarm between the time I opened this thread, and my brain catching up to the date on that photo, which you didn't post today!! What a relief! I think I stopped breathing there for a minute....

Default you're welcome

Where will you be moving from? Seems like Idaho Falls is getting quite a bit of attention lately. My sister and brother in law just came to visit us and literally three weeks later are actively job hunting and preparing to move here.
I'll be interested to hear how you like it here compared to Jackson. I have to say, I have encountered a fair amount of jackson snobbery when I meet jackson locals and tell them I live in IF. A comment I heard
-'oh, that is where we go to shop and get out as quickly as possible'. Or 'what a dump'. I just smile politely and then go on paying my teeny tiny mortgage while living in my 'dump' town with no traffic, great schools and warmer weather. My point being, I think you'll like it here and hope you let us know how you find it by comparison.

Don't forget it did snow here on June 11 this year and in the past it has snowed on the 4th of July

Actually, Idaho Falls was recommended to me by several of my Jackson friends . . . all of whom have quite very gorgeous views from their homes and yards. They've all spoken very highly of I.F.

Plus, other friends (from Jackson) that I have told about my moving plans have also been very supportive and spoke very highly of I.F.

Yeah . . . snobbery abounds everywhere; fortunately it's not always pervasive.





I'm moving from Pigeon Forge, TN . . . and talk about traffic! It makes Jackson seem like a one-horse town. They get over 10 million visitors a year and are in the process of building one of Debbie Reynolds' Hollywood Motion Picture Museum which is expected to bring in an additional 2 million visitors per year. No thank you!

Idaho Falls has a pretty sharp transition between seasons. Look at this graph: Average Weather for Idaho Falls, ID - Temperature and Precipitation

Most other locations have smoother curves.
