This is billings, and winter is kind of our thing.
Hibernate until spring? Nope, although we do slow down and just cool off a bit. We turn course and begin exploring the great indoors. Souls are warmed by the appreciation of local fine art and cultural venues. Shorter days lead to longer happy hours, and the only thing frostier than the forecasts are the beer mugs. The sounds of a Montana winter are best heard at Billings' world-class symphony, with a hot cocoa in hand. The only survival skill you'll need is how to read a menu and discover new flavors.
As temperatures go down, the excitement for trying something new heats up.
