Here's one for Elk's horses...

Draft horses bring fiber optics to remote locations

(Ain't that a good-lookin' horse?)

I'm in Billings this week and MAN did it ever pour rain today. Check out the Billings Gazette and take a look at the waterfall created over the rimrocks as a result of the rainfall. The town was inundated today!

I feel sorry for those already dealing with flooding prior to this event. Hopefully this rain didn't get to areas east and south (Crow) where they already got pummeled.

Get a load of these record water volumes --
Floodwater covers Eastern Montana
Don't think I've ever even heard of most of those areas flooding before.

Here's a website with a lot of history of Great Falls.. this page links to some of the 1964 flood photos, when the Sun River acted a lot like what's going on in the Billings area:
1960 - 1969 History of Great Falls, Montana

Something interesting from the Great Falls flood of 1908

Think they'll be adding one after this year??!

Let's see, where to begin. Still raining. Flood warnings are out.

I-90 closed
Hwy 345 No unnecessary travel
Hwy 336 No unnecessary travel
Hwy 14 No unnecessary travel
Hwy 338 No unnecessary travel

This morning
Hwy 338 Closed This is the highway that goes from Sheridan up to Decker Montana and the coal mine. My son works out there and just got off his 12 hour shift at 6 this morning. In order to get home he has to go up to Busby, over to Lame Deer, to Brodus, down through Riddle to Gillette and then come up I-90 to Sheridan. Heck of a drive at the end of 12 hours.

Last night there was word of a failed dam West of Sheridan so they evacuated part of Sheridan. They set up shelter at the College. This morning, we learn that it was a false report so Law Enforcement evacuated residents for nothing.

Today is that terrible trip to town to get grocery's. The upside? I'm having lunch with one of my daughters.
