Snow but mild! Back up to +17 by Wednesday!

Thought I would post a bit of the excursion to Whitefish, MT for Good Friday!  We left on Thursday @ 9:30 AM and arrived approximately 3:00 PM.  Loooooooooong drive.  We didn't know what to expect and were pleasantly surprised!  An NO bill when we left!  That's the best part!  People were extremely friendly and apologetic that the BBQ's weren't filled with propane!  Next time!

The spectacular Rocky Mountains of northern Montana present an opportunity for unsurpassed outdoor recreational activities. Near the magnificent ski area at Whitefish Mountain with miles of fresh powder and pristine Nordic trails, discover a winter Shangri-La. Summer finds you heading for Whitefish Lake to enjoy a day of boating, water skiing, fishing or swimming from the white sandy beaches. And with Glacier National Park only minutes away, you won’t want to miss driving the ‘Going to the Sun’ road. The town of Whitefish offers shops, cafes and local breweries all within walking distance and a hometown atmosphere that is contagious.

Recover from your day on the slopes in the resorts crystal clear freshwater pool or steaming hot tub. Your spacious two bedroom condominium gives you a chance to take a break and refresh before heading back out to discover foaming whitewater, winding mountain trails and the hometown feel of beautiful ‘Big Sky’ Montana.

Here are some pics!

Heading back on April 4th, we ran into snow....roads were a bit slippery in sections.  Just took our time and arrived back around 5:30 PM.  Put the stuff away and headed for the garage for a beer!
Moon in Montana Mountains!  This was taken well after dark!

I was going to take April 6th off (Easter Monday) but the temps are going to be colder so scrap that idea...will take a day off when it's a bit warmer.  We are now told that we MUST take one day a month off without pay....they are starting with 3 months but expect it will be longer and possibility of lay offs coming as well.  THREE people have quit my department....and left behind a mess for the rest of us to clean up.  One person deleted over 5000 emails and projects, meaning we have nothing to work with and no back up!

Next Monday hubby is off to BC for a week long sales meeting...then in May off to New York for Light Fair 2015!  He will make a quick stop in Ontario to check out the disaster at Bowmanville and then a short visit with Mum.

That's about it for the week!  Here are a few more pics from the trip!  Happy Easter and a safe week to all!
