The winter storm that has sent much of Montana's temperatures well below zero since last night is expected to last for the next several days and school administrators have decided that is not a good enough reason to put our kids on icy roads this weekend.  Events, including tonight's Butte High basketball doubleheader against Glacier High and tomorrow's doubleheader against Flathead High as well as tomorrow's Butte Central doubleheader against Hamilton have been postponed and/or rescheduled.
