Strong Winds are a thing of the Plains in Montana

Last week on Thanksgiving day it was in the sixties in many parts of Montana. Strange to say the least because for some time now it has been cold with even snow on the ground when Thanksgiving rolls around.

It is the wind, those wonderful Chinook winds that cause the temperatures to go up. Just before Thanksgiving early one morning I was awake and heard the winds start up and noticed that the house was getting very warm. I saw that around 5am the temperature outside was almost 50 and the winds had died down.

I was sad because I had hoped to have a roaring fire in the fireplace for Thanksgiving...
