Dog Days Of Summer

Roadrunners are a common sight in southeastern New Mexico, therefore seeing one is nothing unusual. My wife and I were out driving around near Lakewood, when these two young birds (male and female) ran across the road in front of us. They darted across the road and into this mesquite bush. This is the first time in my life that I have ever gotten this close to a young roadrunner before. I could have literary reached out and touched them. Click on the photo to enlarge it.

A persistent upper level ridge of high pressure continues to dominate our local weather, keeping any thunderstorm activity confined mainly to the mountains. This will change by Monday, as an unusually strong upper level trough of low pressure digs southward along the West Coast. The flow aloft will turn southwesterly, as mid level monsoonal moisture gets pulled back over southeastern New Mexico. Thunderstorms should once again pop up across the plains of southeastern New Mexico tomorrow, and more so Monday and Tuesday.

1984 - El Paso, TX, normally receives 1.21 inches of rain in August. They got it in forty-five minutes, with four more inches to boot, during a storm which left Downtown El Paso under five feet of water. (The Weather Channel).
