Mother Nature in Montana Has NO Chill
Montana weather pattern: No snow, rain, cold, wind, cold, snow, slush, wind, and then more and more snow.
Lately the weather around here can't decide where we stand at this point. We are less than a month away from official spring in Montana and the Electric city has pretty much seen every season just short of 90 degree weather.
Yesterday in the Electric city, we saw most of the snow from last week melt in 45 degree weather and as we wake up this morning, it's back in full force.
This morning my wife came into our room to break the bad news to me.
"We have more snow this morning, it snowed all night!"
All I could do is look out to our vehicles out front and giggle
So here we go again, is this winter's last stand before we switch seasons, or is this a new normal? It seems as though winter acts crazy every year in Montana. I never really pay too much attention, but has it been this sporadic in recent years or at anytime for that matter?
I see in the news reports of an atmospheric river dumping snow on California locking people in and I wondered to myself, does this atmospheric river ever reach us in Montana?
Turns out according to a news report from KTVH out of Helena, Montana it does reach us but in a weakened state.
This report is from a couple years ago, but it does lay some sort of evidence on how mother nature in Montana has lost it's cool for a hot minute.
