Billings, Montana High anywhere from 87 to 103 Low anywhere from 62 to 32
Roller coaster weather - that's what we've been having. Last Saturday we reached a record shattering 103. Previous record was 95 set back in the 50s. Today - Labor Day - our high is going to be 48 with a low of 35. So we dropped 55 degrees in 48 hours. They are predicting snow in the higher mountain elevations. We are also getting rain today and we're hoping for enough rain to really help the firefighters get control of all the fires burning in the state.
We usually have four reasons for coming to Billings - to visit with family, visit with friends,an eye appointment for me, and service work on the truck. This year the visit with friends did not happen and the visits with family were few. Thanks Covid-19 for all the wonderful memories.
Todd has become quite involved with remote control car racing which is gaining in popularity here in Billings. I don't understand any of it but he does whatever he can do to make the car go fast, paints it in special paint jobs and decals, and spends a lot of time learning how to make it get around the track without wrecking. The club did not have any events organized while we are here but Todd got some of the guys together for some drag racing and practice runs. It was fun to watch everybody race their cars and have a good time.
And the sun sets on the race fun. Well it did for Jim and I anyhow. The rest of the "kids" stayed until about 10 or so.
We celebrated Labor Day on Sunday (since it was going to rain all day Monday) by grilling chicken wings with corn on the cob and mashed taters at Todd and Michaela's house.

Zoey stole my heart the first time they brought her home as a puppy. She loves her Grandmas and turns into a lap dog when we show up to visit.
