Montana winters have been mild for the past few years, but that has not always been the case.  Not only is Montana notorious for biting cold temperatures, but it is also known for a relatively large amount of winter snowfall.

As a matter of fact, according to ask.com, the largest snowflake to ever be recorded fell in Fort Keogh, Montana and was almost 15 inches wide and 8 inches thick!  The monster snow “chunk” fell from the big sky on a blustery winter day on January 28, 1887.

It might make a person think twice before complaining about the snow that falls nowadays!
