    Please send it to the western states. The mountain states. We are in desperate need of it.

    Y'all have obviously not lived in bad droughts. They are awful. Seeing wildlife walk slowly with their heads low from thirst... Grass so brittle and dry that you have to pull the shoes off the horses that need them and not ride them because you can start a fire.

    Yet with all the snow, we now have had a moose on the deck (we live in a fairly people inhabited area) twice. They are coming out of the bush because the snow is so deep that they can't find food.


    I'm not saying we are worse off than you, we aren't. I am sorry about the drought there. Also sorry that I can't send moisture that way. I grew up in the Montana mountains. We had dry weather, though not as bad as you are describing. We would watch the helicopters scoop up water from the Flathead lake (we lived about a mile up the mountain) for fighting forest fires. I'd sooner live here, even with the major amounts of snow, -40*C temps, wind, mosquitoes, flies, moose, bear, and wolves. Those you can do something about, dryness....not so much.

    Total in my town, 16".
    Most snow since 1982.
    Most snow in March ever.
    Doesn't compare to some of you folks up north though.
    At least it is not frozen too.

    We got so much snow last week, the horses have removed themselves from their pens. Onee horse went over a 10ft wall, the snow drifts made a nice little slope for her to escape. Most have decided to be pasture horses, but there is one gelding who is just pen hoping. One day he'll be in his own, and later he'll be in Walter's (empty) pen.

    Can't wait for this to start melting...

    Ugh. I remember my horse doing the same when we lived in Regina. The snow drifts agains the fence and then packs in so hard the horses just walk over the drift and escape.
    As frustrated as I am with the recent snowfall here, I'm glad I'm not there.
    Warmer temperatures are on the way. I hope spring comes soon for you and you get a fantastic summer.
