I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

Yes, yesterday, MEMORIAL DAY , we gad a gale. There was snow and sleet and wind. Just like most days in Dutch. But it slowed down later in the day.
Today was calmer and a bit warmer. Low 40's.
I had to go into the warehouse today on my day off. ISSUES. Too bad I can not tell you about them, pretty interesting stuff. Right now all is good. And it all should make for a good second book when and if I ever leave. The first book is still in process, but I am in no hurry. Recently I cut the manuscript in half. And now I rewrite that.
This evening GNU and I took a ride to check out the roads I last checked in December. We went out Summer Bay Road. It was open past the landfill, a definite improvement. The road is hard by the bay, with steep cliffs to one side. The avalanches from that side are the issue. They clog the road and block it. The city plows it when it seems doable, but it is not plowed as of now. It is open for a mile or so past the landfill. For now.
Then we turned around and headed back. And we headed for Overland Pass. Up past the quarry, which was last blocked. But we did not get far. Drifts. It is almost June. I predict Overland Pass will be open in at least 3-4 weeks. Happy July 4th!
Long term forecasts call for tougher winters ahead.
Tonight is a great evening. Calm, mild, and sunny. Perhaps our two weeks of summer has begun!
DOTMOM has a big birthday Thursday. Happy Birthday Mom!!
