Sunday Perks Of Cold Weather

Horse whisperer Erica Curless (now also part of The Spokesman-Review team producing the Monday Boomer U page) sez it’s “never good when your trailer tire passes you at 60 mph.” At the time, Erica was hauling a load of heifers for sale to Billings. The Les Schwab at Thompson Falls said it could replace her tire – next Wednesday. So Erica & Co. limped into the Les Schwab in balmy Missoula (9 degrees) to fix the tire. The road trip continued from there over the slick-as-snot pass near Livingston (minus 20 degrees). Fourteen hours later, Erica made it to Billings Livestock Commission. It was 14 below in Billings. Sums up our Country Girl: “Who needs Botox when it’s 14 below? Cheeks frozen in smile”/DFO, Sunday Huckleberries. More here.
