June in Montana: We had scheduled an appointment to have our air-conditioning system get a “check up” now that summer is almost here.
Tech was supposed to come today…but a few minutes after 8 a.m., we got a voicemail from the company saying that it is TOO COLD for them to perform the maintenance check – said that it needs to be at least 60 degrees, and with the current temp at 49 degrees and not much hope for a big warm-up, they would need to re-schedule.
So: on June 19th, it’s too cold to have an a/c unit serviced in Great Falls, Montana.
You all know that I love the snow and the cold — I’ll take a Montana winter over any tropical beach — but wow, THIS winter just keeps on coming. Check out the latest forecast:
Jonathan Logan is a science teacher here in Great Falls – fun to follow on Twitter.
He’s getting some national exposure thanks to a brief video he shot during the super-ultra-freezing weather we had a couple of days ago. The video was picked up by USA Today and shows what happens to boiling water when it’s thrown into the air – when the temperature is -26 degrees.
From KRTV STORMTracker Weather: “Great Falls officially dropped down to -26F at 7:04 a.m. — breaking the old record low of -22F set back in 1980.” Here’s a look at current temps across the region.
Now it’s getting serious: our coldest weather in just over three years, apparently. Looks like we got about 5 or 6 inches of snow today – and I think that makes it 4 out of the last 6 Mondays that we’ve had snow.
Going to make the Christmas Stroll on Friday night pretty challenging…and I feel sorry for the poor souls that are taking part in the annual Polar Bear Plunge.
According to my buddy Mike, things are going to get a lot colder (and snowier!) around here in a few days…check out his predicted forecast high temps for Great Falls:
