I hate these kind of threads! People in EVERY state seem to think that their state is better than the rest, and that there is no way an outsider is ever gonna "get it". Get over yourselves already! There is a perfect place for everyone, for some that is Montana, and for some it's not. Why does it matter if you were born here or not?

You can find lists almost EXCATLY like that that say you grew up in Texas. I love Montana, have since the first time I visited, that's why we moved here. But it is a lot like Texas in many ways(good ways), minus the scenery and of course the winter. And those people who say it can get as hot in MT as it does in TX.....YEAH RIGHT! Maybe for one day!

There is no question that you better be prepared in the winter here, cuz if you are clueless you will be wanting to get outta here ASAP for sure! But I honestly think people moving here must know that, right? Moving out of state takes a lot of work and time, so I'm sure most people research where they are going to be living, at least I know we did.

But whatever, I don't understand some of the people who try to scare people into thinking MT is a state unlike any place in the world, telling people not to come here unless your tough or something! Every state has something that makes it special, and a lot of people rank MT at the top, myself included, but don't be so naive to believe that because people aren't a "native Montanan", that they can't possibly know what to expect here.

I've been here for only one winter so far, and most of the locals here said it was the worst winter in 20 something years. All I could do was laugh; I wanted to know when it was going to get really bad! It never seemed that bad to me, even when the roads were closed in and out of town. I dunno, maybe that's just me!

I moved here twenty years ago with my grandparents from... GASP!... California, and everything said in the OP and others is true. I still don't like the snow, hate having to drive to pick up simple things, but I wouldn't go back to California even if you paid me.
