Water Resources Decrease

NRCS

The unseasonably warm weather over the past week has depleted the water stored in snowfall around the northwestern Wyoming river basins.  According to the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the snow-water equivalent in the Snake River Basin has dropped to 65% of the 30-year average even though total precipitation there remains about 85%.  Snow-water in Yellowstone’s Madison/Gallatin basin is now 60% of normal while elsewhere in Yellowstone, it is estimated at 68% of normal.  Conditions in the Wind River basin are no better with the snow-water estimate now at 63% of normal.  Already the fire season has begun in southwestern Montana with fires being fought west of Butte.  While conditions are certainly more moderate in northwestern Wyoming, fire officials say those conditions are rapidly deteriorating with the continued warm, dry weather.

    Where did that good old, brown, tan and black camo pattern go? You know what I mean. The pattern duck and goose hunters used to wear all the time. It was just splotches of dark brown, light brown and a little bit of black. Big splotches. I’ve been complaining for years that you can’t find […]
