Simply For Viewing Pleasure

I wrote about the area of high pressure that was moving through Montana, bringing bitter cold to the entire state. Although the high pressure ushered in temperatures that were below zero (F), the high pressure also had another effect; clear, sunny skies. Despite very low temperatures, the conditions were superb for some quite beautiful pictures.

These images all came from public webcams yesterday. The only real purpose in sharing them is for the beauty and viewing pleasure. These pictures are great reminders of the adage, “Life isn’t measured in the number of breaths you take but in the number of moments that take your breath away.”

  1. I think I would like to visit Montana one of these days in the winter time. It seems to be very wide open out there with still lots of places to roam. Your roads are in a lot better shape than ours. With the last two winters we have had, we have potholes everywhere (in the city of course) and still have huge snowbanks which can be dangerous even in the city as you cannot see any upcoming traffic.

    • Oh, we get potholes, too. The road department is usually pretty good at filling them in when the weather permits it, but you should see the road out in front of our house. I mean when there isn’t snow and ice on it. The highways are in much better shape. They also do a pretty good job of graveling them.

      Where I lived in Southern Oregon before moving to Montana, the town had a serious problem with the snowbanks. They would pile up a berm that was five or six feet high in the center of the road, and as you said, when the snow is that deep, you can’t see the people in the other lane.
