You will all need Elmer Fudd hats, and Carhart jackets. You will fit in fine, and look like natives. Wear lots of flannel and plaid.

Lands End and LL Bean catalogs are my go to for clothes.

I purged my wardrobe of all things plaid because I had to wear a plaid Catholic school uniform as a child. Plaid and wooden rulers = ptsd for me (I'm not kidding).

Lol jasper, I do not see my wardrobe changing to plaid, the kids may like it though. But seriously, we will have to make major adjustments to our clothes, because here we are in tshirts and shorts 9-10 months out of the
year.

My husband will.have no problem fitting in he already "looks like he's from there".

Was wondering though what the "typical" weather for March is like? Or how its suppose to.be?

March is usually more windy, but you never know when or for how long. This year the weather pattern is so unique, we can't count on what it has been in the past being the way it will be this year. It still feels like spring in Bozeman. Scary for having a hot, dry summer.

Winter's a long time going...Stays long, this high....March is a green, muddy month down below. Some folks like it. Farmers, mostly.
Sorry, but I just had to quote Bear Claw Chris Lapp from Jeremiah Johnson...

Thanks for the flashback, Clark Fork. 'twas a truly great movie. I salute you and raise you one with the following statement by Jeremiah's friend, Del Gue: "I said, 'Mother Gue, the Rocky Mountains is the marrow of the world.' And by God I was right. I ain't never seen 'em, but my common sense tells me the Andes is foothills, and the Alps is for children to climb! . . . These here is God's finest scupturings!" (Jeremiah Johnson - Wikiquote ).

I have been hitting the Texas sales here for winter clothes for the kids. Lots of light weight long sleeved and flannels so far. They are so used to wearing jeans and a Tshirt almost everyday. It's going to be a climate shock, but we're all very excited
