Big snow is forecasted this week for Montana.  Some areas near Bozeman are forecasted to get 1-2 feet of snow.  Measuring snow in feet in September?  Not bad, Montana, not bad.  It’s only September, humans…

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for the Bozeman, Montana area from 9am Wednesday until noon Thursday for elevations above 7,000 feet.

Bridger Bowl ski resort is about to get nailed.  Big Sky should get some good lovin’ outta this as well.

This news is very good and very real.  Because of this, we’re gonna let NOAA do the talking so there’s no doubting it:
