I'm confused, PF. Montana doesn't have winter? You don't need winter coats? Montana is right next to North Dakota, where the air force parka is de rigeur nearly year round!

Oh, I get it. You live in Southern Montana!

Missoula is completely surrounded by mountains and we are only 3000 ft above sea level. We are in the "Banana Belt." We do get cold at times, but only for a few days and rarely get much snow. Eastern MT has high winds and it gets very cold. I wear sweaters most of the winter.

Had no idea. I grew up on the flat, windy, frozen ND prairie. Iowa gets almost as frigid. Wonder if the ND folks realize how balmy Missoula is? Who needs California!
