Well we should have expected it.  We knew cold weather was going to return to the Electric City. We really didn't need a groundhog to tell us that Montana was going to get six more weeks of winter.

That doesn't mean I'm not disappointed that we're going to experience some below zero weather again next week. I'll be honest I hate the cold. It's not that I can't handle it, I just hate it.

Give me spring and fall weather and I'm happy. I also hate really hot weather too.  Oh no, I just realized, I've finally gotten to the age where I'm going to yell at kids to get off my lawn.

What can we expect?

It is all supposed to start Saturday with some slight snow.  It's only going to get worse from there.  More snow through the week, perhaps up to 7 inches. Then the cold comes. By Tuesday night we could see temps down to below zero. Then it's single digits until the weekend. Overnights could even get to twenty below.

Why do we live here again?

It's no secret Montana has brutal winters, and as tough as we are, there's probably been one time in your life that you said "this will be my last winter in Montana." The winter ends, we all go outside, and remember why it is we live in the Big Sky.

So bundle up Great Falls the cold is coming. If you are wondering what to do when it gets too cold to venture outside, check out these awesome at home date night ideas.
