  1. I remember the schnook winds
    My dad would get so mad! They always blew the back fences down!! There would always be 1 or 2 randomtrash can in our yard. Do they stoll get them there?👍👍👍🇺🇸🗽👍

  2. If the Weather Service is correct, there is a substantial winter type storm behind these. By Sunday night there is supposed to be heavy, wet snow falling in the northern Rockies, the kind that breaks down trees and pulls down power lines. We have warnings across Idaho, Montana and Wyoming and we are expecting to lose our electricity sometime between now and Tuesday. I went out and bought extra batteries today and our propane grill is ready for use for cooking. The chain saw is sharpened and filled with gas. I hope everyone else is prepared. If you are not, you might want to take action now, before it hits.
