Dave & J.B. at Copperfield Park near The Oxbow . . . Dave & J.B are here
telling me about the depth of the winter snowpack (about 27 inches, more than usual).
And the extreme weather event of January, the 1st in 1997. There was a sudden
rise in temperature, followed by intense rain on top of the winter snow. The result
was a record-setting flood at the confluence of the Snake River (Hells Canyon
Reservoir) and Pine Creek. "You had to take a boat to Halfway!"
