I am betting that we are done with extended sub-zero cold. Now just moderate cold until that one afternoon of spring and then SUMMER, followed almost immediately by more winter.
Why do we live here again?

Because, for several months a year, the insect population is lower than the temperature......

Here in Helena, I slept in this morning, and drove out with the dog at 10 am
to go ice fishing at Black Sandy on Hauser Lake. When I got there, it was -3. When I left at 2 pm it was 6. I didn't get a bite. It was like middle of winter fishing....except that it is March. Under 12 inches of snow, I encountered 18 inches of ice.

I do not see an end to this, sorry.

My wife and I drove the east side of Flathead Lake today. There was some open water but the lake was more frozen than its been since we've been here. We also have close to two feet of snow on the ground in Bigfork. Last year on St Patty's day, you barely needed a windbreaker on and there was no snow.

NOAA is calling for a slightly colder than normal March and a warmer than normal April and May. Keep in mind February was supposed to be warmer than normal.

I guess you guys don't want to hear about how my daffodils are blooming.
