I drove the three hours to Coffee Creek, MT for a visit with my parents.
The previous day, record setting high temperatures had been reached.
The following day, cold weather arrived, with record setting lows. These pictures were taken from the deck of my parents' house. That's Square Butte to the North.
It was 22 degrees on Friday morning and had been 82 the day before. It had snowed a bit and was hazy and cloudy. The mountains to the west are the Highwoods.
My father is 81 years old and he still does all his own ranch chores including feeding the hay and calving. He still rides his horse to work the cattle. My mother and I drove to Great Falls to attend the big Quilt Show there. We had a good time, did some shopping and had lunch at a Greek restaurant.
