Culbertson Speech And Drama Compete In Billings, Cut Bank

Eight members of the Culbertson speech and drama team traveled to Billings to compete in the first annual Fall Kickoff meet, jointly hosted by Shephard High School and the Billings High Schools.
The meet was held at Skyview High with 26 schools attending.
The Culbertson students competed against AA, A, B and C schools and were judged in accordance to the AA rules, which  differ from A, B and C rules for some events.  
The Culbertson students held their own, with some students scoring their personal best at this meet. The day ended with Nica Granada placing fourth in memorized public address, Michaela Cathey placing second in pantomime and the team placed first in the Class C Drama Sweepstakes and second in Class C Speech.
On Friday, Nov. 7, the CHS speech and drama team spent the better part of the day traveling to Cut Bank to compete at the Cut Bank Invitational Meet.
Culbertson brought home the first-place trophy in Class C Speech and second place in Class C Drama.
Nervous about competing against unknown competitors, the students used this long ride to practice their pieces.
Saturday, the team proved once again they could hold their own against the bigger AA, A, B and C schools.
When the last timer beeped, the 13 team members showed the rest of the schools just what they could do with Alexi Bidigaray placing first in serious solo, Michaela Cathey placing first in pantomime, Nica Granada taking second in MPA, Chase Kilzer taking second in original oratory, McKade Mahlen  placing third in impromptu, Emma Pederson taking third in humorous solo, Garrett Reid finishing fourth in memorized public address and Angela Benson taking sixth in serious oral interpretation.  
Austin Pederson, Lindsey Reid, Austin Furakawa, Wyatt Shelton and Tessa Larsen were praised by their coaches for doing a great job.

Snow, Frigid Temperatures Come Early To Montana

Winter Storm Astro, the season’s first named winter storm, dropped plowable snow in northeast Montana Sunday, Nov. 9, into Monday, Nov. 10, and brought a cold air intrusion that was a rude awakening for some.
The temperature in Wolf Point at 5 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 11, was just below zero with a wind chill of minus 19. Early morning air temperatures as cold as minus 8 are forecast for this week.
The National Weather Service at Glasgow reported 3.5 inches of snow in Wolf Point, 3 inches near Lustre, 2.5 inches near Poplar and 1 inch in and around
Culbertson.
The Weather Service recorded a storm total of 6.1 inches of snow in Glasgow, breaking a record for Nov. 9 that stood 74 years. The new record of 6.0 inches in a single day surpassed the previous record of 4.6 inches that was set in 1940.
“The heavier amounts were generally in western Phillips County. Northeast Garfield County had the highest reported amount, 8.8 inches,” said meteorologist Rex Morgan, with the National Weather Service in  Glasgow.
There was also a 7-inch value recording 13 miles northeast of Bloomfield in Dawson County.
All this begs the question: what do Typhoon Nuri and Bombogenesis have to do with Wolf Point’s weather?
Not much directly, but both do have indirect impacts on the current local weather.
Typhoon Nuri came out of Asia with a vengeance late last week and became the strongest storm on record to hit Alaska. Measured as a hurricane, it recorded a category 5. Nuri has been termed a massive non-tropical superstorm that has added energy to the jet stream. It generated high-altitude winds of nearly 200 mph over the Pacific Ocean. It has since generated a ripple effect of snow and cold weather across much of the nation.
“[Typhoon Nuri] shoved the cold air front from the Arctic down here,” Morgan said.
Bombogenesis is a term sometimes used when a mid-latitude cyclone rapidly intensifies. The term has been associated with Typhoon Nuri.
“We don’t really like that term [Bombogenesis] as meteorologists. It seems kind of alarmist,” Morgan said.
The National Weather Service predicts unseasonably cold temperatures and possible flurries later in the week.
