Two Words: WIND. CHILL.

Checking out the Weather Channel a few minutes ago and noticed this: “Wind Chill 38” Let me repeat: we have a WIND CHILL in Great Falls. On August 31st. WOOHOO! And although we’re not likely to see any snow here in town, it’s not out of the question at the higher elevations this week:

Chilly Weather in Early September!

I know that snow in August wasn’t likely, but remember, it hasn’t even been two months since our last snowfall!

UPDATE: got an e-mail from Stacey — “It has stopped snowing here for the moment, but out at the Dearborn exit, this morning I woke up to snow falling.”

Local Reads

A couple of my favorite local reads; one set in Great Falls, and the other just a few miles south of town:
As Cool As I Am: a unique “coming of age” tale about Lucy Diamond, who attends Great Falls High School; written by GF’s own Pete Fromm.
The Cow Whisperer: this is just plain fun – humorous essays and insights from local favorite Skip Halmes.

Job Update

What a great first week at my new job! The folks at KRTV (reporters, techs, admin) have been awesome – friendly, helpful, and sincere – thanks, gang! I’ve spent most of the time playing “under the hood” of the content-management system used by all of the Montana’s News Station-branded sites; the rest of the time has been spent watching how the news is “made” and adjusting to the culture and jargon of the news biz (vo-sot-vo, rundown, etc)… Read more

Free Oil Changes (?)

Got an e-mail from Walter with the following information:

According to an e-mail received from SK of Great Falls: Saturday, September 20th, Faith Center Church on 10th Avenue South is doing free oil changes for single moms or those in need. Have them call the church for an appointment (to get the right oil filters for them).

Sounds like a nice thing – will try to confirm on Friday.

Cold Hard Cash on Letterman

Well this is certainly cool (no pun intended): local favorite Cold Hard Cash is slated to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman! From the band’s MySpace page:

It’s confirmed! We’ll be on the Late Show with David Letterman…on NOV 21ST! Mark your calanders and check it out! If you’re in Missoula, MT. this Saturday (30th), we’ll be playing at The Badlander (208 Ryman Street). Come celebrate CASH style with us!

If you’ve never seen Cold Hard Cash before…do so. Trust me.

UPDATE:
Cathy notes in the comments: “Hello. I just wanted to let you know that this is a misprint about the date. The real date of the appearance will be November 18th. It is a Tuesday. Thanks.”

UPDATE, November 19, 2008: awesome! Cold Hard Cash did a great job on Letterman last night – read more (and see the video) right here!
