Good news – another Great Falls blogger! Our newest member is J. Michael Brown who writes “Trails, Tales, and Journeys.” His most recent entry deals with his arrival in Great Falls several years ago, and his “weather shock” making the transition from Guam to Montana:
It was about 90 degrees when we left Guam. San Francisco’s temperature was about 45 degrees. I was freezing from the climate change….(as) we were watching the Weather Channel, they showed the wind chill in Great Falls was minus 90 degrees. That was a 180 degree turnaround from just a few days ago when we walked along the beach in Guam. I was cold in San Francisco at 45 degrees. I was frigid in Dillon at 30 below zero. I wondered, “How can anyone survive in this climate?”
As we popped over the hill on I-15 coming into Great Falls with a 40 MPH wind blowing us all over the road and with us freezing as the heater was on high, I told Robin, “Don’t worry about this place. I’ll put in for orders to get us out of here as soon as possible.”
That was about 20 years ago.
And he and his family. Welcome to the Great Falls ‘sphere, TT&J!
