    My lawn is 2 ft under white stuff. Weather man was wrong today. He said sunshine and cold, I see clouds and flakes but he got the cold right.

    I've decided to not pay attention to what the weatherman says anymore. They said that it was supposed to be in the 40's this week. It was minus 2 here this morning. But the sun is shining. And with the sun shining on the snow it is starting to melt. One can only hope the weather is going to get better.

    The roads finally got plowed here. There are several ski tracks up on Mt. Sentinel. Apparently it's pretty tough getting there, you have to hike in from Pattee Canyon or go straight up the mountain. What a beautiful valley, at least when the sun shines. DSCN0655.JPG

    Wow, that's amazing. But, maybe that's why so many folks want to live in Oregon.

    Boy, I'm sure glad I don't live in Helena. Here is Dillon the weather is just a little nicer. I don't even look at the weather page anymore. It's wrong 95% of the time.

    Around here is only this part of Oregon that has such mild weather. Once you cross the Cascades to the east, it's a completely different story... same as it is in Washington State.

    However, I can see why the Oregon Trail ended at Oregon City and why the settlers preferred the Willamette Valley over the remainder of the state.

    I was in Grants Pass, OR last week, over 6" of rain in 24 hrs.
    Three solid days of rain, the rivers looked like chocolate milk.
    I heard the fishing was great two days after I left.

    I don't mind Helena. My wife still works and we live outside of town so we don't have to deal with a lot of city things. It's nice to be fairly close to CostCo etc and a couple of great micro-breweries. Plus, I'm close to the Blue Ribbon section of the Missouri and a 45 minute drive and I'm on the upper Blackfoot.

    We both have 4-wheel drive vehicles, so getting around isn't that big of a deal.

    I do like the Dillon area though.

    "Is this a road or the river ?????"
    That's the Clark Fork from the California Street Footbridge, looking east toward downtown.

    While the folks in the Willamette Valley are mowing their lawns with Gene cussing them out, I'll be plowing snow.

    The Helena forecast for this Saturday:

    Oh, and 8-12" of snow

    Too cold for me! I think I prefer yelling at the idiot neighbors for mowing their lawns than dealing with those temps!
