Default Montana water update

Since i see that many of you want to come out here this summer I thought I would give an update on my drought busting efforts here. Tuesday it was 30 - 38 below everywhere in Yellowstone Park. All of Wyoming was below zero and most of Montana. My home town was -36 and here it was -27. The front of the cold left 14 - 24 inches in the mountains and yellowstone since last thursday. Red Lodge Ski mountain has gotten 48 inches of snow monday and tuesday.

Here is a grahpt of the snowpack to date.
