    Running Away

    THE MADISON
    High And Fast

    WALLPAPER:  DOWN THE DRAIN
    -------  
    .. The Madison River discharge is at about 111%. This is considerably higher and faster than normal for this time of year.
    .. This is good for the level of water in Hebgen Reservoir - for now.  It makes the utility happy. It also means that Ennis won't flood in this winter - so far.
    YELLOWSTONE WINTER GRUB
    .. It also suggests that there may be too little water come Spring and Summer when the fish need it.
    .. Our continuing mild start to winter and, the low snowfall sends the low level snow pack down the drain.
    .. This is not a clarion call about disaster - not yet. How silly it may seem to the lowland population that we, (most of us,) are rooting for more snow and more cold weather. We will see what the future holds.
