Although there are still several "active incidents" on the Montana wildfire roster, the snow that we've received in September has drastically improved conditions. It might be the most welcome snow we've ever seen.

Bozeman based Kris Zigich of Kris Zigich Media captured a beautiful aerial view of our fresh September snow.

(You can see the list of active Montana fires here....) but seeing phases like "zero perimeter growth" and "minimal fuel" has never been so welcome.

Thanks, Kris, for sharing your quick video. Snow has never been such a happy sight as it has been this month.
