    Stay warm and dry and safe. I think rgbear has the right idea.

    Sit tight - spring will come - here in New England we are going to get 3-4 inches of new snow. It just won't give up. My husband shoveled snow off garden area and dug up some parsnips - ground not frozen so when snow completely melts - Instant Spring!!

    I noticed the roads are closed, so I wonder about emergency transportation. What do they do about that?

    I've only been in eastern and southern Montana in the summer and thought it was wonderful-I think I'll pass on the winters. :)

    Goodness! That IS isolated!

    Hope all local pregnant mommies-to-be are prepared to birth at home where it's warm and safe! LOL!

    I have only been to your beautiful state a few times - but just loved it. Looks so different from our farm land here. Hope you enjoyed your day despite the nasty weather.

    We stopped at the McDonalds in Cut Bank last summer on our way to Glacier. It's a beautiful area, but I don't think I could take the winters there. It was neat to look at the map and see where we travelled last summer and realize that most of those roads are closed now. Brrr. It's supposed to get in the low 70's here today.

    What do you do in winters like this? Do you have to stock up on food and necessities? How do you keep your water running? I am from the south and have never been to the great north west of the country. Can you tell us how it is in your area. I have heard that the ground splits from the cold. Hope you don't think that I am to nosie I am just curious because it is so different from Chattanooga, Tennessee

    Thanks

    Gail

    My area is the same. Miles City, southeastern corner. Spring can't come soon enough for me.

    I was born & raised in MT - live in MI now and we're getting the same gunk. However, tonight the weather man says it will rain. Bet that melts the 2 feet of snow in the backyard! By the way, Robinmg, I went to high school in MC -- and, Ann, my aunt taught in Lincoln. Love that state!
