Some Interesting weather facta
were obtained by 'phone Wednesday
from C Wi Avery, manager " of the
Blue Mountain sawmill, twelve mile
east of Weston,
Snow is now 53 Inches deep at the
mill, with a loose top layer of about
It Inches. The total anow fa '.I aince
winter began haa been ISO Inches
During the cold weather la the low
lands the temperature was fairly
warm at the sawmill, ranging from 10
to SO degrees higher than at Weston.
When a minimum temperature of 14
degrees below aero waa registered
here, the mill thermometer read 14
degree above a difference of S8 d
greea In the mill's favor. Thla dia
crimination on the part of the weather
gods toward the "mountain district Is
unprecedented lo local weather his
tory. The temperature - even grew
warmer aa the summit of the Blues
waa approached. At the Lucie n Oat
chet. place near the aummlt It waa
four or five degrees higher than at
the sawmill. Were It not for the SI
Inchea of snow, the aeveral popular
summer resorts In the' Blue moun
tains might make a tempting bid for
winter patronage -if the aame pleas
ing brand of winter climate could be
guaranteed In future. ' '
The Chinook thaw Friday and Sat
urday in the lowlands was followed by
another heavy faN of anow, ranging
In depth around Weston from eight to
ten Inchea With ' a much milder
temperature than that of the preced
ing week, a quite Ideal brand of win
tar weather waa provided.
Tha Chinook melted the anow la the
hills and caused several troublesome
washouta on the O.-W. R. A N. One
of them, on Dry creek, was soon re
paired. Another on the Wild Horse
