Experts Say Snow Pack Looking Good

The man who measures the Oregon snowpack is back from Mount Hood with good news. Jon Lea is the USDA's snow man says they measured 147 inches, there was 61.8 inches of water in that snow pack, and it was raining slightly where they were there. There is the snow measuring site on Mt. Hood; as important as the snow, is the amount of water in that snow. Next week, Lea will release his predictions on how much water that snow will drain into Oregon reservoirs, lakes and rivers this summer.
