Glad he's OK though. Did he learn his lesson? Men...they can't be taught.
He had the Yaktrax on, but they don't work when you trip on the sidewalk. He was walking through 3 foot drifts.

We'll see what happens tomorrow when he wants to check the mail. He can't leave it out there, even though it's in a locked box.

Oh my goodness. I hope that kid is okay and that there isn't anyone else in the rubble.

You guys have a mountain called Mount Jumbo?

HIGH OF 22F. Snow flurries started early this afternoon, it didn't amount to much. It's predicted we will get more snow by morning. The temp's have been continuing to drop.

They are looking for an elderly couple whose house was also destroyed.

The kid is in the hospital.

UPDATED
MISSOULA - Authorities say that a child and an elderly man haves been recovered from the scene of where an avalanche hit a home in the Rattlesnake on Friday afternoon, but the search continues for a missing elderly woman.
Missoula County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Paige Pavalone says the young boy and the man were taken to St. Patrick Hospital, but there's no word at their conditions.
Pavalone says the avalanche that struck a home in the 900 block of Holly Street ripped off the top floor of the two-story home and then filled the bottom floor with snow and debris. The man was recovered from the bottom floor, but the woman has not yet been found.
The Flathead County Search and Rescue team, along with a chaplain were called to the scene, which is near Mount Jumbo, which is where the avalanche happened at around 4:15 p.m."

Avalanch??? I thought you were in a less mountainous area of Montana. I was through the Glacier area back in the earlier 80's and thought I wouldn't live there. Beautiful area but winter storms.....oh man.
I hope everyone in your town is ok. When I hear of avalanche warnings I think of friends we have in the Revelstoke area of BC. Scary stuff.

Nope, I live IN the mountains, actually a large valley with mountains all around. The community affected is right up against the one of the mountains, I am a mile away from another peak on the valley floor. This whole area is what what once known as Glacial Lake Missoula.

I'm enjoying the snow, but not the wind and the danger this amount of snow presents.
