The base area looks busy today http://bigskyresort.com/the-mountain/webcams/base-area-cam
Rain Shadow... They probably felt it, and got very nervous about it. Yellowstone is a huge caldera and one of the hottest volcanic spots in the world, so earthquakes are kinda scary.
I wonder if they felt the quake http://weather.com/news/news/montana-earthquakes-july6-2017
Rain, many people here do have solar panels. We've thought about it. Just two of us in our smallish home. I keep temp at 82 F during the day. I'm home during the day (retired). Husband at work all day. When he is here, we lower the temp to 79 F.
I have always found it extremely improbable that 15 tons of aluminum should be able to fly under any circumstances, and it is nice that at 120 degrees the scientists agree with me.
Silver Squirrel, I hope you do not have to travel far at the moment http://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/nation-now/2017/06/19/its-so-hot-phoenix-they-cant-fly-planes/410766001/ Do you use solar panels to power your air conditioning, etc.? It would seem to be the most sensible option in your climate.
Hi Silver Squirrel...Montana has a wide range of weather patterns, depending on where you are. High mountains in the west and flat plains in the west. The record high is 117 and the record low is -41. Big Sky routinely gets over 300 inches of snow per year, and sometimes goes over 450 inches. It is indeed a wonderful place, but it takes a special type to live there all year.
Montana sounds like a lovely place to be, given that temps in the Phoenix area this weekend will soar to 114-120.
Of course! Everywhere else is having a heat wave, so it makes sense that Montana would do the opposite. I once made a snowman on July 4 just a bit north of here.
Back to winter conditions again http://webcam02.bigskyresort.com/viewer/live/en/live.html
Jime ...... it's always good to have a plan ...... something to look forward to. :D
Yes it's beena day or two! Rest assured I'm planning the next voyage! I'll be sure to let you know. It will most likely be Kauai though.
Hi Jime ...... haven't seen you for ages. I bet it seems forever since your vacation. :D
I can see dirt again.
One thing's for sure ..... Mother Nature will always have the upper hand.
Mother Nature loves to mess with us, it is revenge for us messing with her.
It's a waste of good snow at the resort but 2 snowflakes near me is an inconvenience. :D
