Is it the middle of June or the middle of January? That's the question some residents in parts of Idaho and Montana may have been asking this week as their communities were transformed into a winter wonderland.

With the summer solstice just days away, Old Man Winter ruffled some feathers across the northern Rockies by delivering a large helping of snow, with totals surpassing a foot across the highest elevations from Tuesday into Wednesday.

The Blaine County Sheriff's Office in Idaho said on Facebook that it was issuing a "felony warrant for Mother Nature for Illegal Dumping." A storm total of about 10 inches of snow was measured north of Galena Summit while south of the summit, a total of 6 inches was measured. The sheriff's office also responded to several stuck vehicles in the area.

A snowplow in Yüksekova, Turkey, 18 June, 2020.
Hakkari, known for its rough weather, is gripped with heavy snow even though summer has set in. Snowfall bears down particularly in rural areas of this southeastern Turkish province.

In the Yüksekova district, crews have been working to clear snow-covered roads. Snowplows pierce through 3 meters (9.8 feet) of snow in areas with high altitudes. For the past 20 days, crews have worked to reopen roads leading to military bases in the Göllerbaşı region, some 40 kilometers (24.9 miles) from central Yüksekova.

A 16-kilometer road has been largely cleared so far while the snow depth reached 7 meters in some areas. Officials say they expect the road to be cleared fully in about two weeks.

Death of millions of bees triggers natural disaster in Croatia

Croatian authorities declared a natural disaster in the country's northernmost province after tens of millions of bees died from a suspected case of pesticide poisoning.

Beekeepers discovered carpets of dead swarms last week in the region of Medzimurje, near the border with Hungary. About 1,150 hives were wiped out, with about a third of the area's apiarists sustaining losses, Croatian Beekeeping Association Zeljko Vrbos said by phone Wednesday.

"We suspect pesticide is the cause," Vrbos said. "But the investigation is still ongoing, so nothing can be said for certain."

Agriculture Minister Marija Vuckovic told broadcaster RTL that an analysis had shown the insects didn't die of disease, but she refused to declare a cause until authorities conclude their probe.

The natural disaster declaration allows the state to pay compensation for agricultural losses. The Adriatic nation is home to about 10,000 beekeepers, whose 500,000 hives produce some 8,000 tons of honey a year, Vrbos said.
