Watersheds Also Have
Plenty of Snow and Much
Moisture Is Promised.
Santa Fe, N. M., Jan 15. Fairly
heavy snow fell In the mountain dis
tricts during the closing days of No
vember and frequent snow storms dur
ing December gradually increased the
depth of snow, says the weather bu
reau. The unusually protracted cold
weather during December, which was
the coldest month for the territory on
record, prevented the snow from melt
ing, and at the close of the mouth the
accumulated depth was much greater
over the watersheds of New Mexico
than for the past several years.
In the San Juan watershed the aver
age depth in the valley was 11 inches,
the same as a year ago, and in the
mountains 34 Inches, oi- six Inches
greater than last year. In the Rio
the mountains 27 inches, five Inches
more than it was a year ago.
Over the San Francisco, Gila and
Mimbres, the average in the mountains
was 20 inches and is In marked con
trast to the average of last year, which
-was 1.5 inches. The reports from tho
Canadian watershed gave an average
of IS inches for the mountain districts,
four inches more than a year ago, and
eight Inches for the valleys. In the
valleys of the Pecos and Southeast
watershed the average was eight Inches
and in the mountain 16 inches, a ma
terial Increase over last year
