Thunderstorms with lightning but no rain moved toward western and central Idaho, where flames have already charred 105,000 acres. The Boise Interagency Fire Center, the national fire coordination center, said 23,000 firefighters were battling the worst of the fires on 182,000 acres, primarily in Idaho, Oregon and California. The center said the war has already cost over $27 million. More than 220,000 acres have been charred in a bout of mostly lightning-caused fires that began July 26.

Five teenagers who spent the night lost at a northern Idaho ski resort that was raked by a snowstorm were safe Sunday after three found their way to safety and two were spotted by snowmobilers. "There wasn't much to do but keep yourself huddled together," said Aaron Baudry-Peterson, who was among the three 15-year-old boys who found their way out. "You just sat there and you didn't get any sleep," he said. "So I sat there and I prayed all night long."

Snow and freezing rain on Friday turned city streets into a giant skating rink from New York to Washington, D.C., and a blizzard dumped 18 inches of snow on Idaho's mountains. Gusty 25-m.p.h. winds blew new-fallen snow off rooftops and iced over streets in New York City. Taxis and cars skidded into one another, denting fenders and tying up traffic across much of mid-town Manhattan during the morning rush hour, officials said.

Artist Helle Scharling-Todd is on a mission of sorts--to brighten up Ventura County. Her first move was to put in the large floor mosaic at the Port Hueneme Library. Now she's trying to do the same thing in Ventura. In May, Scharling-Todd received a $2,500 grant from the Ventura Arts Council to create something for the H.P. Wright Library. Unfortunately, she's been unable to match that figure through private sources, so she's only gotten as far as doing the sketches.
