The Blackfeet Tribe and Montanans east of the Rocky Mountain Front are just beginning to dig out of a record-breaking early-season snowstorm. It'll take a few days for the snow to melt and things to return to normal. By Saturday morning, 20 inches of snow had already fallen on the Blackfeet Nation.

Robert Desrosier with the Blackfeet Nation's Disaster and Emergency Services says the tribe activated its emergency operations that morning and closed all roads except Highway 2 East.
