That's a vast improvement over -13 with wind chill of who knows what. <BR> Missoula county won't show much improvement they say at Weather central. <BR> The general subject just horrifies the folks in the south.

I moved to Montana in 2000. I immediately felt like I was home, we have our challenges here, just like every other state, but, I have found that the people here are not like other. <BR> <BR> If you get stuck in a snow drift, everyone who passes stops to help. If you get a flat tire, same thing. When a community hears that someone is suffering EVERYONE steps up to help. Small towns filled financially challenged people hold auctions and spaghetti dinners to raise money for a community residen... Mon, 28 Apr 2008 15:46:13 EST What's Blooming in your Area ??

I recently moved to Small Twin Bridges, Mt for Belgrade, Mt. The change has been really good for me and my family. My boys can ride their bikes to school and most days I can walk to work (about 3.5 blocks). I love the small town and laid back attitude. I don't love all the extra weight I am carrying around. I have about 25 pounds to lose, most of it I have been carrying around for 7 years (baby weight from oldest DS). I am trying to be more active an e... Sun, 16 Sep 2007 14:17:45 EST Hit a wall..... <em>39</em> <BR> Hi everyone. I am just needing a bit of support. I have had a tough week. I fell off my plan for a while. My husband joined sparkpeople, but really expected me to just do all the work for him. I tried for a few days, but I entered more of his food and fintess then mine. I found when I am not tracking my food it is so much easier to cheat! So we talked last night, and I am working harder on my stuff now. But I am still feeling pretty icky about myself for not taking care of ... Fri, 18 May 2007 19:10:03 EST The Women's Challenge Hi Everyone! <BR> I just joined the Woman's Challenge at<BR>m. The idea is to walk at least 10,000 steps a day or 30 min of exercise a day for 8 weeks. It looks really cool and you can join teams to "virtually" walk across the country. I'm taking the Rocky Mountain route, and if any of my Montana friends want to join my team, it's Rocky Mountain Girls. Check it out!
