"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors." - Thomas Jefferson (appears in the Jefferson Memorial)

Snow and ice

Meridian snow
From the cover of this week’s Idaho Weekly Briefing: Snowfall has been steady in Idaho in midwinter. This was the scene one morning last week in Meridian, even as the sky had turned (possibly temporarily) blue. (image/Joel Kennedy)

 

With word of shutdown of a large segment of Interstate 84 in southern Idaho (earlier everything between Boise and Bliss, now a partial reopening between Boise and Mountain Home), time seemed right to run this picture from Meridian again, as it appeared on the cover of this week’s Idaho Weekly Briefing.

Thanks and kudos to Joel Kennedy, who shot it.
