well im quite a ways from bigsky i dont think its open still but they might be i dont keep up on that stuff
total snow we got was 16 inches most of it has melted and today we got up to 55 this weekend and next week are gonna get really warm though up into the 70's the pintler mountains the ones i live next to are in a special weather adivsery saying local streams will rise near or above flood stage... not that they havent been flooding the fields for the past month oh well fire season won't be so bad this year since the lower elevations have risen above freezin for some time now and it takes a while to melt 6 feet of snow. my land still has about 3 or so more feet in the trees.

That is awesome that you still have 3 feet up in the trees! How late is this for melt-off for you? I was just curious about your location, I'm pretty sure Big Sky is closed, although I saw that Aspen re-opened down in Colorado. Amazing snow season in Rockies this year.

well were atleast 3 weeks late this year thers a mountain close by and its usually clear by the fourth but this year i dont think it will quite make it. so were not really that far behind.
but then again its hard to tell whats normal.this time last year the temps were up to the 90s and fires were every where. now were just below normal for temps and were behind on precipitation.

well two days ago on the 3rd we had a thunderstorm that wet snow fell out of and left about an inch or so. all the snow from winter is gone and now we are breaking record highs in he 90's.

yesterday on the fourth we were in a severe thunderstorm watch..... they got that one right in 15 minutes my brother and i counted 241 + or - a few lighning strikes two small funnel clouds and we got about 3 inches of 1"- 1 1/4" hail that dented cars and broke windows.this was in the town nearby were the whole family got together.
all day and night we had large storms going by that let off spectaclular lightning dispalys while the towns people let off thier fireworks.
turned out to be quite a show

I'll take it that you use a windmill ohmy.gif
Just curious, how long have you been "off the grid?"
Run into any problems with things freezing up in
winter?
Do you have backup (generator)?
How close to power are you?
I'm sure Anaconda has power, aren't they a big silver mining town?
(or were)
Not trying to be nosy, wife actually is interested in something like
this.

Wow that is really cool.. hardly any snow this year!!! That thundersnow that you talked about reminds of me when a upper low (small one) actually probably like a winter MCS came through and caused strong winds 30 MPH, alot of lightning, thunder, and heavy snow!!! it was crazy we got about 2 inches from it... I think it was around february when it happened it was just amazing!!!!

well to answer those questions weve been off the grid for quite some years now nearing 20 weve only had power ourselves for about 5 years now.
the valley we live never has had or never will have power its been set aside for this type of living.
to answer the freezing problems...weve never had any problems with the windmill freezing even when we get down to 30 or 40 below the wind constantly blows so it never has time to freeze the solar panels do slow down and aren't as effiecient in the colder temps.
anaconda does have power but we about 35 to 40 min from them they're are actually a smelter city for the town of butte that was the largest copper mine in the world during WWII.
but now the mine has shut down and so has the smelter so thers no economy or jobs in the area...besides that after all the smelting the area has become one of the largest super fund sites in the western hemisphere.

the weather is hot but its turning for the better by thursday the snow levels yes snow will be down to about 8,000 ft next month the snow should begin to fly again...summers are very short here.
two days ago i woke up with frost on my trucks windshield and the thermometer at 29.
with the low humidity currently 8% we might get up to 80 during the day but we always drop into the 30's and occasionally the 20's during the night

Wow, thats some dry air!
Amazing how wide a temperature difference you can
get with that dry of air.
I knew someone in that area mined for copper, just
could not remember which town.
Anyway, thanks for the info.
Keep us posted on the snowfall! smile.gif

That's incredible! I wish it snowed in VA in august...T~T We don't start seeing flakes fly until December (Excluding the mountains) with the first measurable snows coming through as soon as January starts.
