The city was first founded as a planned power city, with businessmen exploiting the fact that the city was (and is) surrounded by waterfalls. Because of this, the city quickly became a transportation and rail center, and was on its way to becoming one of Montana\’s largest growing cities. However, population growth slowed with the advent of the suburb, as well as rail transportation and usage slowing considerably. Today, the city is slowly on its way back to its former glory, with population growth happening slowly but surely.
The temperatures in the city, during the summer months, typically hover around 80 degrees or so during the day, and drop down to around 25 degrees at night. During the winter months, however, the temperature rarely exceeds 20 degrees, and during the night temperatures often go below 0 degrees. This is mainly due to the fact that the city lies in a very arid, yet cold, region.
