Hello, my family are conservative and are sick of California's liberal policies and are considering a move to MT.

I'm looking online at Glasgow, but I'll give you a brief rundown on our family so you can see if we might fit in there.

My husband is 70 years old and a recently retired fireman; I'm 51 with a background in law enforcement and journalism. Our daughter is 19 and so is our son-in-law.

Both kids are strong on values and prefer rural life, as do I.

Would a 70 year-old man who has not lived in a snowy winter for many years be able to adapt, do you think? Or might it be too cold for him?

We enjoy community-oriented events and feel like more of a "Waltons" type family.

Thank you for any insight you may offer.

Maureen and family

Hi and welcome to the board!
Here is a lengthy but informative older thread. St Marie is just a few miles from Glasgow.
Glasgow Montana Retirement/St. Marie

The winter is hard but the hunting is great, and the fishing at Ft.Peck is great.
Good luck and let us know how it is going.

At 70 years old you need to be near good hospitals and doctors and being house bond for 9 months of the year isn't fun.

Quite a few of the retirement aged Montana folks I know spend the Winter in a sunshine state.
Glasgow has extremely harsh winters. For Montana I would consider it to be one of the most undesirable spots to winter.
As far as quality of life the other 2 months of the year, I believe it is one of those closed communities because of its remoteness. I may be wrong. The only people I know well from there are happy to be "from" there.
I do know the community is crazy for high school football.

Most of eastern Montana has pretty harsh winters. I'm not sure how well Glasgow is doing with the oil field in North Dakota, but traditionally eastern Montana is well-known for not having many jobs available. As far as being conservative most of Montana is that way so that won't be a problem.

Here is Glasgow's facebook page for the weather service. I was thinking of the winter before last with the mega snowbanks and all the dead animals- livestock & wildlife. Winter along the Hi-line is not for pikers.
