I've lived in Montana for 50 years.  Why do we have to go through this surprise of snow?  It is the last few days of September and guess what, it snows here.  If you have not found your snow shovel, ice scraper, gloves, hat and scarf, don't complain to me.  50 years ago, I was smart enough to realize that there are four season in this state.  We call them spring, summer, winter and fall.  For some of you it's road construction season, too dang hot, 3 days of fall colors and then nothing but cold, snow, rain, bad roads, sickness, and shoveling.  At least I gave you the warning.
