Montana unprecedented April snowstorm dumps almost 4 FEET of snow in 24 hours on Tobacco Root Mountains (video and pictures)


Historic storms have pummeled parts of the U.S. with blizzards, record-breaking hail and tornadoes, causing widespread damage across the central and southern states.

Montana and North Dakota were slammed by the spring snowstorm, which featured 60mph winds and whiteout conditions with up to 47 inches of snow.

The winter storm is expected to continuing piling snow on residents through Thursday.

This spring storm has brought heavy winds and snow to Jefferson County forcing many motorists to get stuck on the side of the road and road crews to work overtime to try to keep these roadways as clear as possible.

This is the kind of storm we’re supposed to have in February and, no, I was in for a total surprise, total shock,” said Whitehall resident Gretchen Ressler.

Preparedness: Protect your home and car with the best lightning and EMP protection available

Like many motorists caught in the storm that started Monday evening, Gretchen Ressler got stuck in the snow on the pass at Cardwell.

It just slid right off the road and into the ditch and the snow was horizontal, it was pitch black and all I could see was snow, so I had to leave the car there overnight,” said Ressler.

Experienced truckers were also surprised by this storm.

This one is a good one, this one is going to be, you know, we’ll remember this one for a long time,” said Billings trucker Rod Albaugh.

Preparedness: Get this filter to drink clean water at home!

Out on Highway 359 south of Cardwell, they’re dealing with deep and blowing snow along this roadway, especially for truckers like that one ahead of me, who’s been stuck.

March, April, they are bad driving months, I’ve always said, you know, if they could take those two months out of the year for driving, it would make my job a lot easier,” said Albaugh.

In Pony, there were reports of 3 feet of snow. I tried to make my way there, but the roads were closed due to deep snow.

I managed to reach a couple from Pony over the phone.

Preparedness: Buy GOLD and SILVER at best prices

Nobody’s going anywhere here unless you’re huffing it on snowshoes or digging out a snow machine to go ride,” said Brad Lecklider.

Brad and his wife Connie haven’t seen this much snow in Pony in years and are concerned for their neighbors.

Here some impressive pictures from North Dakota:

We’re just going to get our gear on and go check on some of the neighbors up here, there are some elderly folks that live around us even though we’re retired. So, yeah, we’re going to go out and travel around in about waist-deep snow for the fun of it,” said Lecklider. [KXLF] has been banned from AD NETWORKS! You can support me here

    • last time they filled like this? 2011 and the flooding was so bad, there were massive crop failures and entire Missouri watershed was a flood plane. So much standing water tonnage they feared it would activate the New Madrid fault zone.
      Maybe thats the intention…

  1. HAARP is doomsday machine made in USA and there are 18 HAARP in world. Russia China , and rogue nations has it total of 18 of them? NWO is coming and global martial Law is already imposed to all nations one way or another and World War 3 is shaping our future. Those do not have potassium Iodine 130 i say se lavi!

  2. 1 Who wrote this CRAP?
    “…forcing many motorists to get stuck on the side of the road…”
    2 And that Blond driving in Snow with Summer Street tires….dumb.
    3 Hell I drive thru mud every day with a 2 wheel truck (front hoghead damaged) and I never get stuck.
    4 Learn to use SNOW tires (Heavy tread look like Mud tires) w/studs and remember this – 4wd don’t always work best for ICY roads.
    5 Plant BIG gardens and raise animals for meat – chickens are the easiest and taste good fried, Boiled (Soup), Broiled, baked, eaten raw…KIDDING! and in stir fry.
    The new Minimum is here and it is showing the AGW freaks what is really coming. When they realize what’s happening, they’ll still say it was caused by Mankind!!!
    If they do that to your face tell them to look UP, and answer ‘what would happen if the Sun’s energy was completely blocked from hitting Earth?’
    Watch their brains burnout trying to explain what would happen … in 1 year the Earth’s average temp would be 20-25°F.
