(BONNEVILLE COUNTY) – It isn’t every year that eastern Idaho gets a spring as wet as this one, and as much as some might love it, it’s starting to hurt local farmers. Wheat and potatoes may get into the ground a little later this year, or may rot if the ground doesn’t dry out soon. Good news may be in store Thursday and Friday however, as sunny skies bring temperatures into the upper 60s and low 70s.
