With frigid temps across the Treasure Valley, some people are choosing to warm up their vehicles before they have to jump in and head to work. Let's be honest, going from the warm house to your toasty car is much more appealing than shivering until you hit the highway...

This morning we got word of not one, but two cars being stolen. Owners left them running to warm up and someone took off with them They were in two different cities (Meridian and Boise) so odds are they weren't related.

Saturday Night while Brenda and I were on our date, which doesn't happen very often, we got a call from our youngest son Kody. Come to find out, he was downtown too, which is cool, since our kids actually like hanging out with their parents.
