We’ve gone through about four or five “winter weather advisories” over the last month, and they’ve all turned out to be busts (at least here in Great Falls) – but this one really came true! Started on Thursday night around 11 pm, when the rain turned to snow – very wet, very heavy snow. By the time it stopped mid-morning on Friday, it was nearly 12 inches. Not to worry – by the afternoon, the roads were almost completely clear, and the weekend is going to be much warmer.

And for anybody who is surprised or shocked or horrified that we could get a lot of snow in late April: hey, it happened last year, it happened the year before that, etc. We’ll have another two or three big “dumps” like this before Spring is over.
