Rainbows & A Fiery Sunrise.








Another example of being in the right place at the right time.

Although we still have two more days until we close out the books on this months rainfall totals, I have listed the preliminary totals above. Its been a good month rainfall-wise for the area. As is usual some of us have made out like bandits while others not so much. The Queen CoCoRaHs Station leads the way with 9.95" so far this month. This will go a long way in putting a dent in the drought up there. I have recorded 5.37" here at my home in Carlsbad, which brings my Year-To-Date total up to 9.38". Even though we've seen beneficial rains over much of the state this month, I'm very reluctant to say that this is the end of the drought. Eddy County has been the focal point for most of the heaviest rainfall amounts locally.

Heating Up This Week With 100+ Temps.



 Valid At 4 PM MDT Tuesday.


Our recent rains have been nice...actually a blessing, and going a long way to at least put a dent in the drought temporarily. I picked up another .11" yesterday here at my home in Carlsbad, NM. This brings my July total up to 5.37", and my YTD total up to 9.38". A CoCoRaHs Observer in Queen, 50 miles west-southwest of Carlsbad, in the Guadalupe mountains has measured 9.55" so far this month. 

We will undergo a change this week as we dry out and heat up. Its been muggy, and with our forecast high temps expected to climb up above 100F tomorrow into Saturday, its going to feel really hot and muggy!

Skline Campground - Monjeau Lookout One Year After The Little Bear Fire.














My wife Diane, and I, took a drive yesterday to the Sacramento mountains. Thankfully the Pecos Valley and nearby areas are finally starting to green up with the recent rains. We ended up at the Skyline Campground, which is located next to the Monjeau Lookout, northwest of Ruidoso, NM. One year later the grasses and bushes have grown back in full force after last years Little Bear Fire. But its evident that the area will take many years to fully recover...especially the trees. Click here to see a video shot from the Monjeau Lookout Tower last year right after the fire.
