We made the right decision. We love this town and all it has to offer.

I am very appreciative to all the advice and info freely shared on this forum. It has been quite a while since I have been on and I just sent this link to a friend who is looking at a Montana move. I guess that prompted me to get back on here.

Thanks for everyone's help, our move has been a success and we are very happy!

Geo

Thanks for posting. I am happy things are working out for you.

Can you tell us a little about year round weather?

Growing up in the Midwest and spending a lot of time in the south, the humidity is the kicker (for us).

We prefer cooler weather overall. The winters, in my opinion, are far better than Iowa/Illinois/Nebraska. Again because of low humidity. A few, or a dozen below zero days is no different than the Midwest. I broom the snow from my drive as opposed to a two-stage snow thrower. We hike,snowshoe, ski, hunt, fish, and get out in the colder weather, so I am quite happy in Bozeman. Great Falls and Havre (hi line) are much windier, so I can't speak for their winters. I imagine a bit like Bismark.

Late July/August gets hot, and with the elevation and UV levels, 80's feel hot, 90 are hot. Great time to spend in the mountains and mountain trout streams.

Fall is great. Love the lows in the 40's, highs in the 60's/70. Sunsets are stunning as is the changing foliage along the rivers.

Spring is beautiful green and the only battle is letting the rivers "blow out" while waiting to get some fishing in and the snows to lessen for mountain hikes and camping.

Again, I prefer Bozeman winters over Midwest winters although the latitude creates some shorter days. February is for flights to the beach and points further south to escape the short days.
