Wild Weather Traveling Hwy 93 This Weekend
With snow, blowing snow, frost and ice, the weather this weekend in Montana was treacherous.
Driving from Missoula to Whitefish on Saturday and then the reverse route Sunday had me a bit worried. Not sure which drive was worse. The drive up was warmer Saturday, but that caused issues with the slush and build-up. The drive down on Sunday was snow-packed - but both ways had continuous snow.
On the way home on US 93on the big hill leading down to Ravalli, there was a double trailer semi jack-knifed on the Northbound side. I heard from a friend that the trucker probably pulled a good-driver move and had his trailers go into the ditch instead of into traffic.
He was OK and had put his traffic cones out and was being very professional. It wasn't really interfering with traffic much, but was a worrisome site to come across.
