Irv going into Alert by Chris HeitzIn his Hungry Horse News column this week, Larry tells the tale of Irv Heitz breaking his hip on the ice. It begins with a typical North Fork road story… I drove the full length of the North Fork Road last Tuesday. Headed up from Columbia Falls at 8 a.m. and had lunch at a neighbors and came back to town by 3:30 p.m. It was a perfect trip. Blue sky and bright sunshine. Temperature was 8 degrees when I started and the winter paving was perfect. As I drove I could see that there was a lot of ice on the snow-packed road and thought it wouldn’t take much to turn the road really nasty. I was not wrong. As the week progressed the weather warmed into the 40-degree range. Read his full column here.

And Irv, our thoughts are with you during your recovery.
