Interesting. Mr. FH grew up in this area of WY and we ranched here for many years. He maintains always that it has gotten much warmer than it was when he was younger. Others say the same thing. Colder would be okay with us, but certainly not drier. We have noticed where we lived in SW Montana that it is now warmer there than the 18 years we lived there. SE Mt where we lived for 22 years does not get nearly as much snow in winter and it's not as cold in the winter as it used to be. That part is a good thing. I have heard stories of the guys on the oil rigs that worked in the 50 below zero weather. It was brutal.I watched a video a friend sent me yesterday by a scientist that said we started a cooling trend 11,000 years ago after a long warming trend started at the end of the ice age and he predicts it will get colder and dryer for the next 50 years at least.
