Early Snow

The first snowstorm presaging winter usually comes in mid-October. It arrived this weekend, especially east of the Continental Divide. Bozeman got about 4" of snow Friday and Saturday nights, but most of it melted on Saturday, so we only saw about 2" at a time.

Billings got all the snow we missed:

Red Lodge, south of Billings, got 40" in 24 hours and schools were closed today (which is highly unusual in Montana). It's not so much the amount of snow that is unusual, but how early in the season it arrived - almost no one has their snow tires on their cars yet, and they really aren't ready for winter yet!
