Welcome!

Hi Mt.magpie, Welcome to the forums. Do you have any pictures? There isn't much to stop the wind in Colstrip. Your a very brave one but, I guess you make do with what you have. I'm for Helena originally. Your almost through the the winter and maybe the Chinooks will keep you warm for the rest of it. Good luck

I'm a native of Libby Montana. Winter in Montana... well, it gets a little frosty. Of course, Libby has the benefit of the mountains. To borrow a phrase of my grandfather's, "There's only three strands of barbed wire between Eastern Montana and the North Pole.
