Montana TikTok Creators Try to Scare Yellowstone Fans with Cold
The mid-season finale for season 5 of 'Yellowstone' just aired. Now, we just sit back and wait for the endless lines of U-Haul trucks to make their way to Montana. At least that is what most residents of the state believe. Since the television drama became such a big hit, fans have been looking at Montana as a place to call home. Except, folks who already call it home say, "the state is FULL."
Surprisingly, Montana did not make the list of states experiencing a high influx of new people in 2022.
According to a recent study from United Van Lines
United Van Lines released the company’s 46th Annual National Movers Study today, which indicates Americans continued to move to lower-density areas accelerated by lifestyle preferences such as a career change, retirement and wanting to be closer to family. According to the results of the study, which tracks the company’s exclusive data for customers’ state-to-state migration patterns, Vermont saw the highest percentage of inbound migration (77%) for the second consecutive year. However, for the fifth consecutive year, the study found that more residents moved out of New Jersey than any other state, as 67% of New Jersey moves were outbound, which is down from the five-year trend of 70%.
Montana actually stayed pretty neutral, considering the out-of-state people moving in. Just as many residents moved out. Probably due to higher costs of living. According to the study of Montanans, 49.3% were inbound. While 50.7% were outbound.
Still, Montana residents are not happy with all of the out-of-state plates filling up parking spaces. Especially the spaces in front of real estate offices.
It's Montana TikTok creators to the rescue.

The recent cold snap we received over the holiday was enough to get TikTok creators all over the state to band together in an attempt to scare 'Yellowstone' fans from considering a move.
