Ten inches snow falls
Snow Covers Northwest
The finest November snowstorm in a great many years fell here Saturday and Sunday and Monday.
The heaviest fall came on Sunday. The total depth of snow is from ten to twelve inches. It extends all over the Northwest from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific ocean, although the mild weather on teh coast has caused the snow there to melt.
The storm tied up traffic on the railroads following the Columbia River gap.
