Hey, thanks Lynn! I'll look them up. I'm an extreme fan of mysteries.

I'm really sorry to hear that your relatives had such a bad time, but the wind and snow don't blow ALL the time, really! LOL!

I wish they had rented/bought/borrowed snowshoes, X-country skis, or downhill skis and gone outside and enjoyed the winter. It is so amazing to cross-country on fresh snow (not groomed trails, just out in a field or the woods someplace) and see all the animal tracks: rabbits, mice, coyotes, and the swish marks left in the snow by a hunting raptor's wings when he swoops down after a meal. It's really too bad they missed all that.

And the cold is generally dry in these Western states: -20 in dry cold feels better than 32 on the east coast in wet cold. At -20 in W. Y'stone on a snowmobile it was OK, not miserable as we often experienced in the NE. And skiing on powder is incredible; skiing in NE was often on ice and ice hummocks.

I wish your relatives had had a better experience.

You may want to rethink moving out here. It is already getting pretty crowded. Montana, the 4th largest state, just hit 1 million people. And Wyoming now has close to 500,000 people. So that means you would be moving into quite a large number of people compared to just a few years ago. Throw in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Idaho, and we are already over 3 million people. Pretty crowded here, I would think twice!
For those of you who take things too literal, I am being sarcastic.

1.6 million here in Baltimore. We got 50% more and were just a city!
