    Kenneth, is this weather pattern unusual for Montana ? I’m not familiar with that area of the world ?

      Probably not unprecedented for Montana in early April – but certainly getting late.

    Gee blizzard in Scotland maybe extending into Wales. Snow in Moscow in April. Freezing temp in California both Northern and parts of Southern California. Does this sound like global warming or the start of a Ice Age. his the reason I have always checked out what is on Ice Age Now.
