Montana At It’s Finest…

Last night we had pouring rain and 40 degrees, sometime in the night it changed to snow and wind.  This morning it was brisk -30 degrees Fahrenheit!  I don’t mind the cold or snow but sure get hard on critters when we have wet conditions and then gets really cold.  I was happy to see every one fared the night alright and were anxiously awaiting breakfast this morning…

Actually, I am not sure what type of insect it is but it happens every year at this time.  They cover the Green Ash trees and fill the air.  They cover you when you walk outside and are kind of icky.  But this year it has attracted all sorts of birds…
