The (Corvallis) Gazette-Times, Dec. 28, on Oregon snowpack
The snow just keeps coming to the Cascade Mountains, and while that can cause headaches for travelers, it's good news for skiers and other folks who enjoy winter recreation.
It might also be good news for farmers, who rely on a supply of water from the melting snow to keep their fields irrigated, and for those of us who worry about the prospect of summertime fires in our forests. But we won't know for sure about that until later next year.
In the meantime, though, let's just enjoy the early signs pointing to the possibility of a good snowpack year.
