One Of The Wettest/Greenest Summers In A Long Time.

We went up to Queen, NM yesterday to cut firewood. I could not help but notice how lush and tall the grass is, everywhere. It's been a long time since I have seen this country look this good. This comes as no surprise given the heavy rains that have fallen this summer. The bad news is that this grass is already drying out and turning brown. With the current La Nina getting stronger with time, conditions will be ripe this fall into next spring, for unusually high fire danger conditions across the area.

The Cloudcroft Climate Coop Station has recorded 32.45" of rainfall so far this year. Cloudcroft's long term yearly rainfall average is about 26". Eddy County Skywarn Spotter Daymond Wright, has recorded 27.78" of rain so far this year in Queen. Their long term yearly rainfall average is probably about 16". My brother has recorded 17.48" of rainfall at his ranch/farm in Lakewood so far this year. So far this year I have recorded 13.51" here at our home in Carlsbad, NM. Our long term average here in the Pecos Valley is about 12".

I posted some local yearly totals on yesterdays blog. Just go to the right hand sidebar, and scroll all the way down until you come to "Blog Archives", then open it up, and click on yesterdays date. The CoCoRaHS Web Page is a great place to view current and past rainfall totals in the area.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!

Dangerous Sunspot AR3112

Dangerous Sunspot AR3112
WHEN WILL THE NEXT CME ARRIVE? A magnetic filament in the sun's southrn hemisphere erupted on Oct. 4th, hurling part of itself into space. The emerging CME will pass mostly to the south of our planet, but a fraction could graze Earth's magnetic field on Oct. 8th. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for minor geomagnetic storms and auroras on that date.
