Laura Kiehl, a drug and alcohol rehabilitation specialist at South Idaho Correctional Institution, sent us this photo of early winter weather conditions at SICI.

“This is just a cell phone picture, but the fence at SICI-PRC looked awesome with the freezing fog on Tuesday morning,” Laura wrote.

The National Weather Service said Tuesday's morning low of 4 degrees established a Boise record for Nov. 18. It was the third consecutive morning of record-breaking low temperatures.

Thanks for the photo, Laura.

IDOC’s public information office is always on the lookout for good pictures of the department’s facilities and staff in action.

If you have a photo you like, email it to PIO Jeff Ray. [read more...]
