[QUOTE=itat;532463]Platokidd, I'm not trying to highjack this thread but if you're a Blackhaws fan you might be interested to know that Bryan Bickell's parents live about 10 minutes from our place.[/QUOT

That kinda cool..... Heck if it was cool out that would be a heatwave -10F here now

Yeah!!!! It's raining (3 days now) but no where near enough to cancel drought worries, reservoirs are near empty.

Three days of snow up here, drought is still a problem couple of farmers up the hwy from here said they will not be planting sugar beets or spuds because of jr water rights and high water needs of those two crops.

Those whose water rights are not old enough to see them thru a short irrigation season.

Little story from a couple years ago.

Thanks, interesting article, just thought the 'jr' reference may have had something to do with JR Simplot company as I worked for them 30 years after they purchased the fertilizer plant I was working at in Lathrop, California, they took over operation on January 1, 1983. I retired from there a year ago January for a total of 46 years at the plant.

I have driven by the new plant that company is building just outside of Caldwell, Id.
Huge place tons of traffic right now and a lot of people out of jobs there.
