MT winter weather

Recommended Posts

Quail Guy and I went to MT a few years back and it was cold. Every morning at breakfast the locals kept telling us they couldn't remember an Oct. that cold, well they are getting it again. It will be 95 in TX today, I'll take a potion of that down here but not the snow. Be safe MT. board members.

Lord, the weather was awful. The only saving grace was the back roads were frozen. Never saw the thermometer on the TT over 28 degrees. We went through two full tanks of propane in a week.

Note the ice on the taller weeds as the gunners and dog come through.

Been a bummer of a weekend. Not ready for this yet.  Spent all morning trying to knock the snow off the trees in the yard so they don't break over. Got around 14" here at the house and it's still coming down heavy.

Watching the snow come down through the windows of the hot mineral springs pool and spa where we are camping.  Riding out the storm is tough, but we may survive.

No wonder Dave didn't kill any birds last week.

Obviously, finely honed survival skills pulled you through.

We are looking at about a foot here in SE Alberta from that same storm. I drove to work this AM around 0330hrs, snow was just starting and there was ice under it. Slick but still managed to get to work, about 20 miles out of town, at 60 mph. Coming home this evening was a different story. Highway was covered in several inches, wet slushy stuff, vis was down to less than 100 meters due to wind blowing snow at 30 knots, sideways. Did most of the drive at around 30 mph if I was lucky! Vehicles in the ditch every where, 18 wheeler jacked across both West bound lanes, glad I was East bound.

 

I get to do it all over again in a few hours but I'll leave at 0230hrs as I suspect my drive will be slow, if the highway is even open. Supposed to continue to snow till late tomorrow AM.

Headed to bed shortly. Be safe everyone. Winter is here!!!

We got lucky, and have less than two inches by Helena.

I guess we really lucked out. No snow but lotsa rain and terrible wind.

When I was turkey hunting in MT in I think early April of 2011, we started out with cool perfect weather and got hit with 6-8" of snow. The two wheel drive POS rental car couldn't even get us out the ranch roads.
