Every Month our electric company sends us through snail mail, a little simple paper magazine called Rural Montana. Recently there was a poem by Carol Dismore, of Bozeman Montana. They also have their paper on a website. When you get to the link hit the arrow to the right twice the poem is in the center of the page called Ode to Wind. I wanted to share this poem with you as I thought it explained the wind here very well. If the wind can be explained. This area and the Eastern Side of Montana is known for areas of high winds. It has been interesting to experience the winds here, we often joke turn the wind off at the wind switch. Can you name one or two positives about the area that your living in and one or two negatives about the area? There’s also an article on Oil Out East, for the article hit the arrow to the right 5 times for those of you who are interested in the Hydraulic fracturing or more commonly known as fracking. The oil boom in North Dakota is starting to spread there are concerns of it spreading to this part of Montana. There has been several public meetings lately around the area on this topic. The farmers and ranchers want to be informed and prepared for the possibility of Hydraulic fracturing moving this way. It is a complicated topic with a lot of money at stake.
