Doesn't look like it, for at least the next week or so. Something I have never seen on the weather channel before, they put up a warning box that said "unusually hot today, record heat expected".... Even my sweat is sweating! On the up side it will ripen the huck crop quickly.

Having visited Montana in the 80's/90's(mil.and vac.), I occasionally look in here. Obviously, a lot has changed since I was last there. Being an UPSTATE/RURAL (yes, there is a rural NY) resident, we have see an out-migration for ~.10 years-mostly to NC and FL. Maybe..just maybe...it's got a positive side. Places I've hunted, fished, backpacked, rode horses 20 yrs ago..well..are still there. Our county has had a net/pop/+ of 300 in 15yrs.

im not from montana but from atlantic city new jersey, about as different as you can get from montana. but i must agree with the anger they have to these people moving from california or wherever and changing it for the worse.

cali is the land of fruits and nuts. many are progressives who hate devout Chrsitians and force the gay lifestyle on everyone. look at what a mess they made of their state--full of illegal immigrant gangs and out of sight home prices. why in the world would you want them in your state. they'll turn it into some yuppie-hippie paradise full of bistros and toyota hybrids.

west coast values of self reliance and responsibility are a thing of the past. now it's all about self esteem, self fulfillment and self centeredness.

Jenezbel We to are going to relocate to Montana following my Father who relocated to libby last fall. I understand your concerns with rising prices. That is a major problem in most states. We are in sacramento california and have gotten to the point that we no longer can support our family with inflation. My husband makes a good living but not for cal. The things that made decide on Montana is the nature, I want to get back to basic famliy balues that seem to get lost in the bustle of california living. My husband and I are simple people that want to provide for our family , beable to take the time to enjoy life. We don't have that any longer.

Considering that the State of California is home to 33 million people, you're making an amazing generalization. Not everyone is a "fruit" or a "nut", as you so charmingly have called us. Illegal immigration is a national problem, as anyone living in the United States in any of the 50 states can attest to. When I first read your post below, I got angry, but such emotion is a waste of time. Have you ever visited California, sir? Where are you getting your information from?

You are right in saying the prices are rising everywhere.

The thing about Montana is that the prices aren't just rising as they are everywhere, they are being artificial inflated by those coming from states whose economies are quite different than ours. They come here and think nothing of plunking down a huge chunk of change for land or a house, much more than many of us that have been working here in Montana's economy for years can afford.

Montana has consistently ranked at or near the bottom of the states as far as average wages. The most recent ranking, I believe placed us next to last. We have actually lost ground on this since 1980--when Montana's average wages were 90% of the national average wage the most recent figures I've seen (2003-2004)--our average wage was only 75% of the national average wage.

The resentment comes in when someone whose entire life was spent here can't buy a home because they've lived with these low wages all along and their town's housing prices have been inflated beyond normal market value compared to available wages by those coming in with money.

I understand what you are saying but disagree with your method. I don't think the answer is to move because it just brings the problem to the next place. If you really want change--change begins at home. If everyone thinks like you--you will l have a only few good years--maybe--before wherever you move to is just as expensive or not family friendly or whatever. I've seen it happen in several parts of Montana already.

Now they are talking about building a Wally World about 9 miles from my home in a rural area. I am beginning to think Vermont is the only state with any guts .................... everyone succumbing to $$$$$$$$$$
That is so sad about your area!

I think Vermont does have the right idea and I think it might stem from the fact that Vermont residents have valued and retained the history and tradition of strong community. For example, look at the town meeting tradition that still survives in Vermont communities. So many other areas have lost their sense of community and when that begins to happen, I think that's when we see the corporations pushing their way in with big box stores and growth that doesn't take into account the character and history of the region.

It saddens me to see increasing homogeneity of culture across the country through more and more chain stores and restaurants etc.; every city and town looking the same. It is more enjoyable, to visit or live in areas that retain their character and thus are more culturally vibrant.

A fantastic thought. There are plenty of places where you can do that - Idaho, Oregon and Wyoming would be great alternatives.

Colesteve,
The multiple posts in every thread telling people to go to those other states seems like rather transparent attempt to tell people to stay out, just in a backhanded way.
If there are reasons and ideas of why someone should consider someplace else please state them and not just the same lines over and over.
Just a thought.
