March came in like a lamb. Six inches of snow fell on Feb. 23, 1910. It was light soft snow that fell which was followed by what the schoolboy characterized as "air in a hurry" and as it blew it picked up the fuzzy particles and whirled them into space. After frolicking about, tossed hither and yon, these flakes settled on cleared sidewalks or in the country on the roads which were broken open to traffic with such difficulty only a short time before.
The ice jams that formed at North River have moved downstream. The amount of ice blockage that is left is still backing up a large amount of water, inundating the road in places between North River and North Creek. Many people from out of town drove to North River on Sunday to look at the great jam of ice and snow. Mrs. Arthur Cleveland, who has been staying with her mother Mrs. John Dunlap since the breaking up of the ice, has finally been able to return home now that the danger is past. The ice in the Schroon River is intact but honeycombed and is liable to go out at any time.
The Warrensburgh Woolen Mill (now 18 Milton Ave. lot) is the only industry suffering because of present conditions. The ice has backed the water up into the mill's tailrace and stopped the wheel and operations are suspended in consequence.
Now that blessed March has arrived, the most reliable harbinger of spring is with us and we can now afford a little "sugar snow," as the backbone of winter has been broken.
