The Big Skies of Montana have been dry for much of the summer leaving many to wonder just when will it rain next. In Missoula, Montana that answer was “today” after nearly a month and a half of dry weather.
Most living things in the area rejoiced about the long awaited rain and a few even turned to twitter to express their enthusiasm.
The dry summer has taken its toll on Montana and other states in the west setting up prime conditions for wildfires to burn.
The drought conditions around the Missoula area are not as pronounced as in the eastern part of the state where exceptional drought conditions exist.
