Lately, it seems that a lot of people are telling me they feel down, a little out of it, just not as happy as they can be.

Is it the weather?

No doubt, it has been dreary. KTVB meteorologist Larry Gebert says we had only seven days without rain in March.

So, what can we do about how the weather affects our attitude?

Maybe we can take a tip from North Dakota.

Kelsey Jacobson, one of our KTVB.COM producers, lived in that state for a while and told me about their most unusual, attitude changing billboards. Yes, that state encourages its drivers to SMILE!

Do you think these friendly reminders to SMILE and BE GRATEFUL have anything to do with the outrageous amount of snow and below zero temperatures and extended winters they experience?

So, maybe in Idaho during these wet and somewhat cold times, we should try to make a little of our own sunshine. It's not very hard, in fact it's easy...... JUST SMILE!
