Billings, MT High 93 Low 60
It was finally time for us to move on from Helena. The smoke continued to be terrible and breathing was difficult.
This is what our view from our spot was in 2015
This is what it looked like when we left Helena. You can’t see the mountains at all.
Today it has been really smokey in Billings. Air quality for the entire state is ranked as unhealthy. But there is good news in the weather department. The state is supposed to get rain starting tomorrow and snow at the higher elevations. Hopefully this will put an end to the fire season up here and most of the firefighters can go home.
We have been busy since we’ve been here. Monday the truck went in for oil change, transmission serviced, alignment, air conditioning checked out, and a couple of other things.
Tuesday the Bungalow went to Jim and Tracey’s to have both axles aligned. Good thing we did that because they were really out of whack.
Wednesday morning we were at the DMV office at 7:00 a.m. to get the title work done on our new Cottage. Then I had my eye appointment. In the afternoon I got together with the Class Reunion committee to see if there was anything I could help with. The Reunion starts Friday.
We’re also going to try and make time to visit with friends this trip. We’ve had dinner with Todd and Michaela a couple of times. They are doing great which makes us happy.

Shortly after I wrote this post, the wind started to blow and the dust was so bad I thought we were back in Arizona. The cold front is starting to move through. Please bring rain.
