We had about 400 identitifed howlers the first night (April 1st). We had nearly 1,000 the next. After that, I cannot even tell you; the numbers in the group grew so quickly. Our Facebook group in early May is 15,347.
The howl grew quickly and kept getting louder each night. It was so awesome. One lady shared a video of the howls from Mount Sentinel. We did have some issues with fireworks, but that's stopped, thankfully.
Now that restrictions are being lifted in Montana, I still encourage the nightly howl. With the elderly and high risk being asked to continue to shelter in place -- and the health care workers, essential employees, and now non-essential employees working the front line -- there is still very much a reason to howl.
