    Real Snow ?

    SOME MORE WHITE STUFF
    It Comes And Goes
    newbies flutter and flee
    The Suburbs Of West Yellowstone And Some White Precipitation
    -------
    .. For the last month or so our precipitation, occasionally, has been white. Folks from Florida, Tennessee, Sicily, Algeria, and Bozeman make it a topic of conversation.
    .. The neighborhood kids are still wearing shorts and tennis shoes. They notice but don't bother to comment.
    .. It comes down white. It hits the warm ground and melts into nourishing water. It percolates through the obsidian sands of the Hebgen Basin and moves toward the streams and rivers. It's not real snow. But the lowlanders are whining and fleeing.
    .. There will be no trace of the snow in a day or two. In this part of the world, real snow hits the ground and sticks. It stays until the warming days of late spring. It's snow that is stored for the river's future. We're waiting for some real snow - as are the neighbors.
    .. It will be here soon enough. It will call for winter behavior. It will mean that fishing is restricted to some small bits of open water. It will bring temperatures cold enough to usher in some ice fishing. The real snow will come as will the winter. But not right now.
    .. See you on GRAYLING CREEK.
