Tb« report for Msrcb, <rf the
Boite weather bureau, is as fob
Tbs month of March war some,
what warmer than usual, and was
the driest March on record for
Idaho. Very little new suow fell
except in the higher mountains.
The snow disappeared from the
open country and from all but the
higher valleys, and waa noticeably
reduced in amount in the raount
The supply, however, is
somewhat greater in most sections
than it was at the does of March,
lillO. Owing to the fact that dur
ing the present season much of
the enow was wet when it fell
there has been less than the usual
amount of drifting.
Hildes were unusually frequent
in the Wood-Malad river drainage
area end in the watershed of Hip
Mouth Fork of the Boise river, but
were not frequent in other sec
tions. Most of tho enow remain
ing in the mountains is compact
and will melt slowly.
The present prospect is for nri
average waterfl iw in the Salmon
aud Clearwater rivers arid the trib
utaries of the upper Columbia,
•iigbtly more than the average
flow in the upper Snake and
Wood-Malad systems and in the
• streams having their source in the
Owyhee and Seven Devils mount
sins, and slightly less than the
average flow in the Bear, Boise
end Payette rivers. Ir le probable
that the late summer flow will be
considerably better than that of
HOISR KIvEK DBAINAOK.
Plug —There were many slides
and the enow ie very »olid. Mrs.
Rocky Bar.-' Owing to the cool
night« the enow has melted slowly
and the ground a beer lied all the
water till within three day» of the
clone of the month, when the
streams began to rise The pros
pact for the water supply from
thia section ie much better than it
was last year. Win. A. Nixon.
