Did you know that Coeur d'Alene names it's snowstorms and the first of this year will be named “Abracadabra?” Neither did I, but I like it. So why does the city name storms? And how long does it take to complete a citywide snow plowing? What is the Snow Gate Program? All very good questions that can be answered by this thread on the City of Coeur d'Alene Blog.
