The Reunion Is Over and Time to Move on

Billings, MT – Still the same

Dillon, MT  - High 37  Low 35

After our nap we headed back to the hotel for the class pictures and an excellent dinner. I didn’t take any pictures that night but here are a couple that others have posted. Don’t have the class picture yet so I’ll post it when it shows up.



Just one big problem with this whole reunion thing. We didn’t get home until 11:30 p.m. That is really late for us and since we had to get up for church at 8:30, it took us two days to recover. But such a good time.

The next couple of days were spent catching up with good friends, Tracy and Jeff, and Judy and Gary. We also went out to dinner at the Olive Garden with the kids, Todd and Michaela, one more time.

Sure do love those two.


This was the sky over the Olive Garden. Looks like rain to me.


We had originally thought we were going to Yellowstone Park this week-end. We were going to leave Friday because we had reservations in the park on Saturday for four nights. Mother Nature decided to change those plans for us when she dumped snow on the park. Our little Bungalow is definitely not made for cold weather so we needed to head south.

Snow on those mountains.


Only one problem. Before we ran into the snow problem, we had called and requested our mail be sent to the kids’ house. It wasn’t going to show up until Thursday. Thursday morning we hitched up, dumped and filled the fresh water tank and then about 11:30 we were able to pick up our mail and head down the highway.

One of the many smaller fires that had to be dealt with this summer.

Spent the night at a small campground in Whitehall, MT. It was cold and rainy but not snowing. We came over Bozeman Pass and this it what it looked like.


This is what it looks like today from the web cam.

Today we decided to go an additional 55 miles to Dillon, MT and wait for the sun to come out tomorrow. It snowed on us but there was no accumulation. Here in Dillon it isn’t snowing but it sure is cold. 37 degrees.


  1. I wish I could send you some sunshine. We have more than enough. It's cooled down some. Not 98* today just 89*.

  2. Brrr. I shivered just reading that. :)

  3. Y'all be safe. I don't like the idea of driving through snow no matter how little it is.

  4. Wow, what a difference in weather! I'm in Pennsylvania for my reunion tonight and it's 85 degrees out!

  5. That weather changed quickly, didn't it?? The snow is pretty to look at but not fun to drive in!! You all be safe!!

  6. Yep..time to hit the road for warmer climates!!

  7. Take your time. No need to press on any faster than you can safely drive. Brrr is right! Safe travels!!

  8. We have a goal to never see snow again!

  9. I just cannot get into reunions. Must be a defect. I have lived in 21 different places inside and out of the USA. Going to a reunion of people I have not seen in many decades does not seem to peak my interest.

  10. Good luck with that weather not worth trying to drive on slippery roads, hope you get some warm weather soon.


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
