Snow has definitely arrived in Helena


Finally, we get a decent snow on the ground here in Helena. There’s been a good 12-18″ of snow during the past week, most of it still on the ground, what hasn’t blown off. We’re supposed to reach close to freezing tomorrow before another 6-10″ hits us with temps dropping 20-25 below zero. And oddly enough, I guess it’s still novel enough to me that I’m just fine with having the snow and cold around!

Not everything is ugly in the snow. Just don't walk under the roof eaves on days like these.

And yes, Arkansas family, we still go to work in Montana with a fresh 8 inches of snow on the ground.

Many roads in town haven't seen a plow. This is one of the main roads. Just fine to drive on when you take your time.

This winter has had far more sunny and clear days compared to back home in the South. And I am alright with that! It spurred a little Spring cleaning in the office yesterday. These three items ended up on my desk and there’s a story behind them all.

advocacy awards

The award is from my trip to D.C. last December. The buckle is a recent award from the ‘I Love Farmers’ advocacy award earlier this month. But the duck call. I’ll let you stew on that to figure out the story behind it. I’ll give you a hint though. Instead of staying “Duck Commander” on it, the print says “Beef Commander”. That story coming up soon.
