REXBURG, Idaho - Farmers in parched southeastern Idaho are saying "let it snow."
They hope a regional cloud-seeding program will create additional moisture in the mountains to improve the snowpack.
The Rexburg City Council is among a number of municipalities in the region to pledge money to the effort to install propane generators in Clark, Fremont, Teton, Madison, Bonneville and Bingham counties.
Let it Snow, a Clark County company won the contract to shoot silver nitrate crystals into clouds to get them to produce moisture. North American Weather Consultants will monitor snowpack and measure the effectiveness of the program.
