Again our temps are in the 50's. I wish it would just get cold and stay there. It makes it hard to know how to dress. Of course the temps do drop down at night. But I don't go out at night.

I have two coats. One is a heavy leather. Just right for 40 and 50 degree weather. The other is a white faux fur coat that is reversible for rainy weather. It has a hood that is way too big for me. I look like a snow leopard in it. But it is so warm. I put the leather one away. Big mistake. Had to take it out again. I also have been getting a lot of flack from everyone. I do not wear socks. I have a graft on the bottom of my right leg. I do not put anything on it. I protect that graft with my life. So here comes cold weather and all I have on my feet are a pair of black loafers. I have been doing this for the past five years. If I damage that graft, I lose my leg. No elastics, pressure of any kind. I am used to going without socks. And I wish folks would just let me be.

Overcast here. Yesterday was nice: Sunny and comfortable. Gloomy but comfortable now.

Around 11 am this morning the National Weather Service put us in a blizzard warning. It's 19F now at 2pm. It is still continuing to snow with a strong NW wind. When all is said & done 3-5" predicted.

You know where that storm was a couple of days ago...we are a bit more sheltered from the wind. Still 16 here this afternoon.

A little over 6 inches in 5 hours. It was so beautiful that first night. It's good to see some snow on the surrounding mountains.

Sounds beautiful. The closest we get to any hills/mountains are the black hills 5 hours on the other side of the state.

This illustrates how close we are to the mountains, the one pictured here is a 15 minute walk or a 5 min bike ride from my house in the red circled area. The mountains completely surround Missoula.
