But It's a DRY Heat

Granted, the weather in the Boise area has finally gotten warm (okay, hot). But truly, it is a DRY heat. While the rest of the country is melting (currently the temperature in St. Louis is 97F with 49% humidity - making it feel like 109F), Boise is enjoying the summer (and not to rub it in, but today's high will be 89F).

The summers in the area are hot - and you should take relevant precautions - but they are still comfortable enough to enjoy some of our valley's favorite activities. Running, biking, hiking are all very enjoyable during the first half of the day. And when it gets warmer, fishing, rafting, and (finally) floating the Boise river. It's a little later than usual, but the Boise river is now open for floating for the season.

Emergency Department vs. Urgent Care

There are many situations when the Emergency Department is the right place for patients to go: serious head injuries, chest pain - true emergency situations. But research shows that time and time again many of the patients visiting the Emergency Departments at hospitals could be served at Urgent Care clinics. And in faster time. And for less money.

Why PHMG Loves BSU

We love Boise State University Football. Most people in Boise do (except a few rogue Idaho State Vandals fans). Sure the games - and tailgating - are fun. And it's easy to catch the contagious atmosphere that swirls about the valley when a game is approaching. But we love BSU for another reason - what they do for Boise and the surrounding area in terms of National Spotlight.
