Two explosions caused by runaway railroad cars rocked Montana's capital city yesterday, cutting off electricity and forcing the evacuation of thousands as wind chills dipped to 70 degrees below zero. The runaway cars derailed and hit a propane tank near the railroad tracks, setting off an explosion. Minutes later, the fire from the blast caused one of the derailed cars containing a highly flammable chemical to blow up, authorities said. A second car containing plastic also burned, producing a cloud of black smoke that prompted the evacuations.

Only in Montana. We arrived in Big Sky, Mont., several days early for my son's wedding. We planned to do some sightseeing first. The day before our tour of Yellowstone National Park, I got a call from my daughter, Jenny, saying her truck (which was pulling her camper) had broken down an hour from her home in Dillon, Mont. My granddaughter told the tow-truck owner how important it was that they get to her uncle's wedding: She was the flower girl, her brother was the ring bearer, and her grandma had bought her a pretty long white dress to wear, and they just had to be in this wedding.

That quiet, frail-looking guy who dominated the NFL in the decade just ended looks like he might do OK in the new one, too. His team isn't doing so badly, either. He still doesn't have a nuclear-powered arm, still isn't 6-5, and still looks far more comfortable running past linebackers than meeting the media afterward to describe how he does it. But Joe Montana still wins. And in the big games, he is downright invincible. In the '70s, in the '80s, now in the '90s. And he probably will keep on winning as long as he can tolerate the inconveniences.

David needed a bigger slingshot. UNLV, cast in the Goliath role and booed wildly by the crowd, stomped on little Montana, 99-64, last night in Tuscon, Ariz. to kick off a run for a second consecutive NCAA championship. "They're like an NBA team," a slightly stunned Montana coach, Stew Morrill, said. "Nevada-Las Vegas is for real. " Too real. Too big. Too fast. "You get past one player and there'd be another one waiting for you," Montana forward Kevin Kearney said.

Four years after he and his partners sold their firm to Oracle for $1.8 billion, Upper Merion native Greg Gianforte is the leading Republican candidate to challenge Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock for Montana's top office. Gianforte says he learned life tactics on the field at Upper Merion Area High School, where he was left offensive guard on the 11-0 Vikings team of 1979: "You win football games by first getting possession and then running 3- and 5-yard plays. Not by Hail Mary passes.

WHEN DID yoga pants become nam-nasty? For years now, school administrators nationwide have banned middle- and high-school students from wearing yoga pants and leggings, calling them distracting to male students. But now the negative tongue-clucking about the ubiquitous bottoms has shifted from teeny boppers onto adult women. This latest round started in earnest in January after an online post by a Christian blogger about her decision to no longer wear yoga pants went viral.

TOM BRADY wants to give his latest MVP truck to rookie cornerback Malcolm Butler, and why not? When Butler stepped in front of that pass at the goal line, it revived a debate that appeared doomed moments before by yet another miracle catch and Marshawn Lynch's bull rush to the 1-yard line within the final minute of Super Bowl 49. Namely, is Tom Brady the greatest quarterback of all time? It's quite an abyss, the distance from greatness to greatest. No one in his right mind - or even Pete Carroll - would argue against Brady's greatness, his four Super Bowl victories and six appearances over a 14-year span as permanent a marker as professional sports can muster.

As the plane drew closer to Glacier Park International Airport, the mountains were the first indication that this area of America is, without a doubt, one of its most beautiful. The wealth of green mixed with snow, still surviving the 90-degree heat, was breathtaking. My husband, Marc, and I were taking this trip as a way to relax the best way we know how - in natural settings. We planned to explore Glacier Park for two days, then spend one week at a guest ranch in Whitefish. Our first day at Glacier it poured rain, but we were undaunted.
