New Post Concert Traffic Procedures
It's been a long week. I'm tired, but Carrie Underwood's show was on a Thursday night and our 8 year old wanted to go so we bought tickets and went. Great show. She can really sing.

I took the kid out to MontanaFair on Saturday night and had to park in the upper lot above the arena. I didn't mind the walk considering I've been to lots of fairs with much less t…
