Hi all.

I apologize if this question bothers anyone. My wife and are looking to move westward from VA and we both love MT. There is a possible job opening in my field in Florence, MT.

We don't have SUVs. Just a compact hatchback and a Prius (to get me through the hellish daily commute I currently make in the DC area).

What is the traffic/road conditions of the commute from Missoula to Florence? It looks like it's a 1/2 hour drive. Is it doable through the hardest parts of the winter in a Prius?

My wife and I both love the outdoors and I lived in WI for 2 years and had no problem with the sub-zero temps...and I used my subcompact vehicle there for transportation.

We see that Florence is small...we would probably rather live in Missoula or its outskirts and commute. My daily commute now is around an hour one way and is bumper-to-bumper all the way. I wouldn't mind a peaceful 1/2 hour commute.

Thanks for your time.

P.S. I almost took a job in Bozeman last year, but we couldn't make the move happen then.
