Life Giving Rain Finally Arrives!

Continued Drought & Spring Fire Damage.

Abundant grass from last summers rains provided an
excellent source of fuel for wildfires this spring.

Many cattle on the open range are skin and bone due to
the ongoing extreme drought.

Sign of the times.

Sitting Bull Falls remains closed until further notice.

Lincoln National Forest remains closed near Queen.

Another causality of this springs wildfires.

Scorched pavement on St. Hwy 137 west of Sitting Bull Falls.

Thousands of acres of grasslands and forest burned in SE NM.

Summer Monsoon Brings Some Relief.

Brantley Lake levels continue to drop from lack of rainfall.

Afternoon t-storm east of Queen, NM.

Those really are raindrops.

Finally a drink.

Puddles.

More Puddles.

T-storm N of Artesia, NM 7-14-2011.

Arteisa hasn't had water in the streets like this since Sept 2010.

T-storm winds down this old tree in Cottonwood 7-13-2011.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!

  1. Great pictures, well the ones with water in them! The monsoon flow totally shut down in the Rio Grande valley and points west into AZ by Thurs AM. But the hot weather is staying east, so it could be worse...mid-90's so far. Seeing all that wet grass and puddles all over gives me hope!
