For a whole lot of Montanans snow on the ground is just part of Christmas.  Of course, of late, we've had some unseasonably warm temperatures, and several Montana towns have yet to see a significant amount of snow.

This isn't the best news for all of us who enjoy skiing or the ski resorts themselves.

For some, the idea of no snow is welcome, however, there is something magical about waking up on Christmas morning with the presents under the tree, the holiday lights glowing, and looking outside to see a blanket of snow.

Winter can be brutal here in Montana with lots of wind, snow, and temperatures well below zero. In fact, that alone should be a word of warning for those thinking of moving here from warmer climates.

You need to make sure you have the right tires, vehicle, and winter clothing. Plus, I would highly suggest you learn how to drive in winter conditions before moving to a state that celebrates winter 6 months out of the year.
