Kalispell International Folk Dancers

Hi Everyone,

The sudden 10 - 12 inches of snow that fell on the entire Flathead Valley just after sundown, on top of the 6 inches that fell all day, really put driving anywhere very difficult. Russ and Missy turned around on there way. Don and Rose also did not tempt fate to drive from Bigfork. Only using my wife's 4 wheel drive Honda was I able to make it. Max and Eva made the short trip to dance. Jackie V was able to make it in their truck, Ben dropped her off. Finally Sam and Ruth arrived, barley making it to the parking lot. It is so bad they are spending the night at Max and Eva's. Wind, drifting snow - wow a real mess!

As I write this, Sunday morning, this is from the Daily Inter Lake:
Due to the worsening weather conditions, which are expected to continue through Sunday morning, the Daily Inter Lake has suspended home delivery of the Sunday edition.
Road conditions made it impossible for the Inter Lake to guarantee the safety of its drivers; therefore, the Sunday paper will be delivered to subscribers along with the Monday paper on Monday morning.

From Flathead County:
Emergency travel only on Flathead County roads

KALISPELL - Drivers are being asked to stay off the roads in Northwest Montana.
The Flathead County Sheriff's Office issued a request for emergency travel only until Sunday evening.
The request is being made so that state and local plow crews can catch up with the snow that's piled up across the area.
The Sheriff's Office reports that many roads in the county are down to one lane, with less than 50 feet of visibility.
Additionally, law enforcement received 50 calls for road assistance in a five hour period on Saturday.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for all of western Montana through 5 p.m. on Sunday.

With just us few, we went over all the new Tineke / Maurits Van Geel Work Shop dances, many times.

No folk dancing at the Salvation Army next week, we'll all be at Steam and Stomp, Boulder Hot Springs.
