You know about the snowplow...but have you seen "the towplow" in action in Montana? Now that the snow has stopped bombarding the state for a few days after the pre-Christmas arctic plunge, I wanted to take some time to look back at a cool conversation I had with Montana Department of Transportation Director Mack Long.
How common are 50 degree days in Billings, Montana? More common than you might think. Plus, check out these wild temperature swings across Montana in the past week- nearly 100 degrees difference in Bozeman.
Snow, ice and wind have been a disaster for Montana road conditions since Wednesday morning. The entire state has been affected by harsh driving conditions and the first responders have been VERY busy.
By the way, the above photo was shared with us by a proud Montana Army National Guard mom from the Bozeman area. Andrea says her son was in the Blackhawk helicopter helping to rescue stranded flood victims in the Red Lodge area.
