This is what Northeastern Montana looks like right now. 105 inches of snow and counting since the beginning of October. I bet we will have more than 120 by the time the snow ends (if it does). Normally we would be doing sage-grouse lek surveys in a week but I doubt that there will be much surveying done this spring (at least not anytime soon).

Last Friday I came home from further south and found large flocks of Western Meadowlarks and American Tree Sparrows along the highway - apparently stacked up by the the deep snow further north.

These guys are hanging around my new temporary neighborhood.
