I am a retired scientist (analytical chemistry) who, while my first hike in Montana was over 30 years ago, did not get to move here until about 7 years ago.
Since I am a hiker, backpacker, cross country and downhill skier, I have a natural interest in the weather. Because my professional training involved making measurements, and figuring out how much of one thing is in something else, and owning a good weather station and recording the data, while uploading it to the internet, weather watching was something that came naturally to me.
We live just north of the city of Bozeman, and you can see our web cam and weather station data here: http://www.twohikers.org/Webshots/webcam.html
