Nic Martello, age 11, of Frenchtown Elementary drew today's weather picture. Weather art from Montana kids runs every day in the Missoulian. To offer your child's (or students') creations, please send the artwork on an 8.5x11-inch piece of paper and carefully print your phone number and the name, age, birth date and hometown of the student. Horizontal pictures work best. Send pictures to Missoulian Weather Drawing, Missoulian, P.O.Box 8029, Missoula, MT 59807-8029. The newspaper holds on to each drawing for a month or so after publication, if you wish to stop by and retrieve it.
