The power of the press

Once again, we have put on display the power of the press — or, more accurately, the reverse power. On November we reported on the winter forecasts, which called for a wet and cold winter, good news for skiers and irrigators.

Instead we got one of the driest Decembers on record and January was following suit . . . until we published a story Saturday about the prospects of a drought. Voila, it snowed the next day and now a major front is headed our way. Forecasters are saying new snow in the Cascades to the north of us may be measured in feet rather than inches.

To skiers and irrigators, you’re welcome. To those of you who were enjoying our warm winter, our apologies.
