    Tim Leeds|Jun 26, 2024

    A siphon on the more-than-100-year-old system that provides much - almost all, in drought years - to the Milk River broke last Monday, shutting down the system. The Montana Area Office of the Bureau of Reclamation area manager said the bureau was waiting for the water to finish flowing out of the breached siphons on the St. Mary Diversion and Conveyance Works and is working to get a feel for impacts caused by the breach and looking at possible models for replacement or partial repair.

    Part of my early morning routine is to look back in my digital diary to see what happened on this same date over the past eight or so years I've been keeping the diary. Part of each entry is the daily temperature early in the morning, the forecast for the upcoming day and a comment or two about the current weather conditions. Last Sunday morning (June 16) the temperature at 5am was 47 degrees, (and "feels like 41") with near 30 mph winds starting mid-morning and blowing most of the rest of...

    I wrote about the rock houses outside Roundup, Montana in Part 1 of this two-part series. But the first building that really caught my eye in town was the "blue dome-shaped building" that sits on the south side of US 87 just before the highway curves south toward Billings. That building is the topic of Part 2 of the series. When I first started inquiring about the history of the structure I referred to it as "a geodesic dome." Back in the late sixties Buckminster Fuller was on the faculty where...
