Northern Idaho Resident Flying 'Stars and Stripes'

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sandpoint Realty LLC DB36113

'Flag Day' in North Idaho did not have the showing of USA Flags that is normally seen with such Holidays.

Sandpoint Realty USA Flag

With torrential rain, and flood watch warnings out, flags were sparse on this North Idaho Flag Day 2022.  I dug into my archives to find a flag photo.  Flags flown by residents that are set back, and to themselves for mostly the owner to enjoy, are some of my favorites. 


With dusk just turning to night and the lights setting off the flowers as well as 'Ole Glory' I have to think this would be a special porch to walk up to when coming home.  Thank you Northern Idaho resident for proudly flying our 'Stars and Stripes'


I am submitting this as my 3rd post towards the Active Rain June Challenge 'Ole Glory Coast to Coast'.

Thank you for sharing this photo from the archives. Is the rain supposed to let up today? I hope it does here!

We have cleared up here and looks like thru Friday.  Then another chance of rain this weekend.  I believe the heat is hiding behind the clouds and there will be no 'break in' period this year for the hot temps. m

Hi Mark... we had a 20 minute rain storm yesterday morning so it didn't affect our Flag Day. Love these photos, especially the night shot.

Just the right amount of rain to freshen things up.  M

Good morning Mark. Given the winds on my balconies here in downtown Chicago, securing the flag can be a chore. Enjoy your day.

Good morning Mark,

Excellent entry into the June Contest! Can you send some of that rain out way? We need rain badly and are still experiencing very hot temperatures not normal for this time of the year.

I believe we are about done here.  Stretched out a little longer this year as well as much harder rains this late.  M

Mark I like the way the lighting in the picture makes the Flag standout.

Hi Mark- I love the photo!!! Send that rain down here to Texas!  We could use it with heat close to 100 and no rain for weeks.

Nice photos, Mark.  I love the lighting along the stair rails and on the porch.
