Frosty guests arrive for the winter season

Hannah and John Detrick of Libby were caught placing the finishing touches on their front yard snow-friend on Saturday, January 2. “Everyone was starting to go a little stir-crazy around here,” shared their mother, Hannah, “So we implemented some ‘mandatory fun time’ as our family likes to call it.”

As of Friday, January 8, motorists were being asked to take caution if traveling the mountainous thruway. – Posted by Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Montana on Jan. 8.
