Twin Falls maintains its condition in an almost pre-war state. There is more limited use of electricity but with the falls they do utilize a primitive turbine capture of power. The city itself has become smaller, the outer buildings are starting to wear down to rot but overall the town is kept clean.
In an attempt to have some semblance of the old USA feeling, Twin Falls is still nominally controlled as a council-manager form of government. The seven-member Twin Falls City Council is directly elected in non-partisan municipal elections to four-year terms. Almost always are the council members part of the Silent Brotherhood. The mayor, who holds little executive power, is periodically selected among current city council members to chair meetings and is “considered the official representative of the city.” City council meetings are usually held on Mondays.
The city’s day-to-day operations are overseen by a city manager, who is appointed by the city council. The city government through various citizen boards oversees all civil and legal aspects of the town.
The Snake River Canyon forms the city’s northern limits, separating it from Jerome County. There are three waterfalls in the immediate area. Shoshone Falls is located approximately 5 miles (8.0 kilometers) east of Twin Falls city. Pillar Falls is located approximately 1 1⁄2 mi (2 1⁄2 km) upstream from the Perrine Bridge while Twin Falls, the city’s namesake, is located upstream of Shoshone Falls.
Shoshone Falls stands at 213 ft (65 m), which is 46 feet (14 m) higher than Niagara Falls.
Twin Falls experiences a semi-arid climate with monthly temperature averages in Twin Falls range from 34.9 °F (1.6 °C) in January to 85.0 °F (29.4 °C) in July, with lows below freezing from December through March. Highs reach 90 °F (32 °C) on average 18.8 days per year, but very rarely exceed 100 °F (38 °C). Winter snowfall averages 29.5 inches (74.9 cm) per year, though much heavier amounts have fallen. However, in Twin Falls proper after an average snowfall it is uncommon to see more than six inches of snow on streets and sidewalks.
Summer and autumn months are very dry in Twin Falls, with less than 1 inch (2.5 cm) inch of precipitation falling each month between June and October. It is not uncommon to experience fast moving, intense electrical storms common in the deserts of the southwestern U.S..
