Today is the day after Thanksgiving, 2018, and I thought that I’d try something a little different. The following are images taken this morning of this part of Montana, all gathered from public webcams, mostly those of the Department of Transportation and the National Park Service. Although these show some of the scenery of Montana, there is actually another purpose that I have in mind.
You see, the day before Thanksgiving, in the morning, a winter weather warning went up in Montana. A warning means that the winter weather, in this case, snow, is imminent. Often, the forecasters are wrong. However, this warning is specifically for tonight, between evening and tomorrow (Saturday) morning. The warning states that the valleys are supposed to get 4-6 inches of snow and the passes are supposed to get a foot or more.
The thing is that more often than not when the alert goes up a couple of days before the event, we do get pasted with the storm. The only thing that is really in question is the severity of the storm and the amount of snow it actually drops.
My idea is to share these photos, taken before the storm is due to hit, then to share pictures taken after the storm gets here. I don’t know how well this will work, but if nothing else, I’ll be sharing some nice pictures of Montana, so it should be a good share even if the storm isn’t as bad as predicted.
