    .. Yellowstone National Park is closed to all but bicycles & such until April 16, 2010.
    .. However construction crews are already hard at work on the Gibbon River Bridge, and administrative travel in vehicles is permitted.
    .. Here's a sneak peek at the way it is:

    .. The rivers in the neighborhood are both low, and still a bit slow for this time of year. Occasional snow flurries visit us in town but nothing builds up and the streets are bone dry. We can only hope that there is a bit more of the white stuff sticking above the tree line.
    .. Right now our river drainage's snow-packs are running at 50 - 70% of the average water equivalent for this time of year. The rains should start in a fortnight or so and we hope they are gentle, cold, and sleet filled.
    .. Warm deluges would spell disaster for the snow-pack, and the exuberant river discharges would rearrange gravels, spew forth fry, and leave us with low water and the possibility of early warming. We'll see.
