Frozen Parade

Today was the University of Montana Homecoming Parade. It was maybe 10 degrees outside and the wind was blowing. It was brutal frigid cold!

But we bundled and went to the parade anyway!

There weren't very many people out to watch the parade.

Just the brave die-hard Griz fans and a few others of us who had taken leave of our senses.

There were only 2 bands in the parade. All the high school bands and other musical floats pulled out. Can't say as I blamed them. The UM Marching Band and the UM Alumni Band were the brave and dedicated bands. They must have had lips of steel (or ice).

We gave it everything we had but we didn't quite make it to the end of the parade.

We watched the last quarter or so of the parade from the relative warmth of the Catalyst where I got the best buckwheat waffle with delicious plum sauce. So yummy!

It was a great adventure! It took the rest of the day to feel warm again but it was worth it. I had a great time!
