My Morning Drive

I drive to work from Cut Bank everyday and this morning I was treated to a really cool site - Sun dogs! I had to pull over and grab a photo:

I'm wasn't sure how "usual" sun dogs are, so I had to break out the Google when I got to my desk - it turns out that according to Wikipedia:

Sun dogs are commonly caused by the refraction of light from plate-shaped hexagonal ice crystals either in high and cold cirrus or cirrostratus clouds or, during very cold weather, drifting in the air at low levels, in which case they are called diamond dust

Wallewein Family

Submitted by Chris Browning, Louanne & Mike Wallewein

Adam Wallewein was born in White Russia sometime around 1884 in a predominately German settlement.  His father died when Adam was around age 9 and his mother soon remarried.  There were eight or nine children in the family and since it was, at that time, against the law for her children to leave that country with a stepfather, they were left with other families to be raised while his mother and stepfather came over to settle in Canada.  Over the next few years, Adam lived and worked with numerous families and continued his education until the mandatory age of 16 at which time the government said their education was completed.

Scalese-Ward Family – by Joe Ward

Dell T Hales first came out to Toole County in the spring of 1910. She was teaching near Ipswitch, South Dakota and 21 years old. She’d grown up near Mt. Sterling, in southeast Iowa, on a farm called Clover Home, where her father raised grain and hay and fed cattle for a company out of Chicago. Her father had taken the family west to South Dakota in hopes of getting enough land to make farmers of his three sons. One of those sons, Miller, went on west to look for land in Montana. He found a couple of adjacent half-sections in Toole County.  You could homestead half a section in those days, and he figured that if he could get Dell to grab the adjacent half-section, he could eventually buy it from her, and maybe have enough land to actually make a living on. Her motivation was to be to get money to finish college.

How Cold Was It

It was at least cold enough to bring the brass monkey in from the back porch in the book that I'm reading up at the Marias Heritage Center...thus, the title of Rick Sterry's tome, "Blizzard Of '32" makes sense
