Too Cold Too Soon

Winter arrived early bringing below zero nights for days now.  It has been as low as 18 degrees below zero at night and no higher than 12 degrees during the day.  We received what appeared to be five inches of snow and with these temps it is still on the ground.

According to the weather forecast things may begin to warm this week to the twenties and possibly thirties.  We will all be grateful for a little more warmth.

I am thankful for my warm house and good friends.

The above photo was taken by Ken near Norris Hill before the recent cold blast. I love watching the moon rise over the mountains.

Arctic Blast Arrives This Week

It was in the sixties yesterday and when this gull caught Ken's eye earlier this past week.  This morning it was 10 degrees and snowing.  The roads to Bozeman were icy going in this morning.  By the time we returned late afternoon they were mostly clear.

Temperatures are expected to dip below zero for part of the week.  The high today in Bozeman was 20 degrees.

Looks like winter is coming in with a bang.

A Warm Halloween

Living in downtown Ennis this year for Halloween we received an abundance of trick or treaters.  The weather was warmer than it has been in many years causing everyone to  stroll at a leisurely pace rather than hurrying to stay warm.

It was such a joy to watch families walking together.  Parents participated with their children many in their own costumes.  All the children were extremely polite and thanked us for the gifts they received.  Ken managed to capture a few interesting images some of which are posted above.

Temperatures yesterday reached into the sixties.  However, tonight a storm is expected to bring up to four inches of snow and the lows will reach into the twenties with highs in the thirties and forties for a few days.  

I am glad the snow did not spoil the children's fun.
