5 Things I Learned About Montana While on Vacation
I use to live in eastern Montanan During the 60's and 70's ( I was super young so I'm not that old)
Here are a few things I learned.
I kept seeing water stations (similar looking to a car wash) I was a little shocked to find out many residents have what they call a cistern system. A large underground holding tank for drinking and potable water. I guess digging water lines can be kind of difficult and a well can get very expensive. residents have water trucks make deliveries or they have another tank mounted in the back of their truck and fill up at a watering stations.
I was seriously shocked on how nice the rest rooms are!! they have several individual bathrooms which include toilet , urinal and sink.... It's about time someone got smart! hopefully Washington will catch on.
Remember how I mentioned a cistern water system, Most can't afford to use precious water to tend to their yard. I was surprised on how many beautiful homes have burned up grass....but at least it looks good in the spring!
I noticed a lot of people had plastic flowers in pots and various places. Come to find out they do this because the deer eat their flowers! my cousin took us for a drive through neighborhoods and saw several deer wandering around eating everything in site. Locals find them annoying and all around pests.
In our neck of the woods people have to travel to Pendelton or legends to get their casino on! not in Montana... They have slots machine casinos around every corner..OMG I was in casino heaven!!
