The mystery has been solved...the critter I posted about above is a Long-Tailed Skipper. Instead of a fan-tail, it has two long swallow-like hindwings. Quite large compared to other skippers I've seen before.

Vokar , it should be in the Idaho area tomorrow morning. I'm wondering now why the forecast for your area doesn't show it, or does it reflect the plunging temperatures as opposed to the cold and snow that might be hitting other areas as the storm moves east?
I'm on the Oregon border (if you cut Oregon in half horizontally and let the center touch Idaho, that's about where I'd be). It looks like we should notice something, though, but there's nothing on the forecast and the weather is placid and windless right now. No snow or rain (0% chance), but it's supposed to freeze hard tonight. Clear skies.
