A DRY VILLAGE

even the fish are happy

.. It looks like Spring. It Feels like Spring. It acts like Spring. Spring snows and rains are a major part of our water year. Look out Mable.
.. There is both joy and consternation in our village. Of course the neighbors enjoy the warm. The skiers have to walk to the trailhead instead of blocking all traffic lanes. The sledheads have to endure 5 or 6 blocks of muddy alleys to get to the mud of the forest and climb to the snow. Obsolete vehicles with skis for steering are not doing too well on the park roads.
.. Time for a late breakfast.

WHO'D 'UH' THUNK IT ?
Records Falling Like Rain Drops
fishing picks up - not on the ice
.. It's easy to appreciate the joy in the neighborhood as the kids run to the river in shorts to catch lunker trout in these calm and sunlit days.
.. See y'all later.

SNOW PACK DIMINSHIED
neighbors retreat to kitchens
.. A glance at the new snotel sites for the last few days tells the tale. We've lost 5% in the last nine days. More snow is needed to get us into the good zone for adequate summer stream discharge.
.. We're suffering through some small dustings of intermittent, very light snow flurries and peak diurnal temperatures in the mid to high 30's. Trail muck runs from slimy, to slick, to goopy. Most of the neighbors have called off fishing for the moment and are staying warm by the wood stove in the kitchen.
.. A couple of the neighbor kids went down to the Madison River between the lakes. Caught a few fish and reported on slow action, no midges, gusty winds, and ankle deep muck. No noses in the air, nymphs and buggers rule.
.. We're going outside and watch the school kids splash in the puddles.

GENTLE BREEZES -- NOT!
Scudding Clouds & Rustling Trees
magical disappearance of snow
.. The trails to our neighborhood fishing spots are mucky with mud and slush - suspended on the surface by the frozen ground. The fish are possessed of a friendly demeanor and dancing with the goo-covered brave souls at the water's edge.
.. Rain and some wet snow for the Sabbath. Get out the Seal Dry Waders.
