A Change In The Weather

Earlier in the week in Billings we were running the motorhome air conditioner. Friday the heat was running in our house with a high of only 49!  The rain started Friday about lunch time and it has rained steadily–rain is good this time of year in Montana.  We are just very glad it didn’t snow–snow is hard on trees/plants with new growth!

Thursday we had visitors–our friends John and Pam who until recently were fulltiming in their motorhome.  They purchased a home in Nevada and now spend just a few months each year on the road.  They are both retired educators and hiking machines–those folks put miles on their boots almost every day.  We took them to Natural Bridge–our go to scenic attraction close to home and then enjoyed a wonderful evening and dinner.

I’ve told the story of Natural Bridge many times on this blog so I will be brief–in normal water flow times all the river water flows through this large hole and out the bottom as you see in the third photo down.

The “hole”

In years with lots of snow the snow melt adds to the river flow producing more water than will fit through the “hole,” creating an eighty foot water fall as this photo taken in 2011 shows.

Thanks for stopping by Pam and John–we enjoyed your visit!

Friday morning before the rain started we made quick work of emptying the motorhome and taking photos.  Know anyone who wants to buy a Beaver motorhome, 42 foot tag axle, 500CAT engine, with only 57000 miles in really good condition????

Thursday was our Emmi girl’s tenth birthday–no cake but she did receive a new duck–her favorite squeaky toy.  Jim and Ellie gave Emmi one of these ducks when Emmi was just a little puppy–it’s been her favorite toy always.

Whew did it ever rain Friday night and Saturday–over two inches in the gauge and we did see some snowfall just after lunch but the flakes didn’t hang around long.

Our mountains have a dusting of new snow.

  1. How wonderful that John and Pam made it for a Montana visit!! Just a little jealous 🙂 All the water at the bridge is stunning, glad you’re still getting good rain.

    Someone will get a great motorhome now that Michael has done all the work to make it perfect.
