Poor air quality and Air Stagnation Alerts are numerous for western Montana counties right now, and are expected to continue through most of Wednesday. How bad is the air quality in some of the areas of concern?
I joked for a long time that I should move to Great Falls or Billings because that's where it seemed all of Montana's big lottery winners were buying their tickets. That doesn't seem to be the case anymore. One Montana town is selling decently big winning tickets every week now.
The heat and the haze continue for the entire state of Montana this week. Air Quality Index numbers certainly fluctuate but at this point we're fluctuating between levels of 'bad'. Where are the hot spots today for poor air quality?
Our friends at Bee Broadcasting and KJJR Radio in Kalispell just kicked off the 23rd annual radiothon to help raise money for cancer patients in Northwest Montana. It started at 7AM Thursday morning, and continues through Friday night. If you're in Kalispell- stop by the Sportsman Ski Haus. If not, give a call to 257-WING and find out what you can do to help.
Sure, we use bridges all the time but I can't remember the last time I saw one BEING BUILT. Just northeast of Kalispell, a bridge was constructed over the Flathead River and they captured it all on time-lapse video.
