Thus far our winter locally has been one of drought as far as snowfall goes. Note that the Cloudcroft CoCoRaHS Station located 0.4 miles east-southeast of the Post Office has only measured a pitiful 13.8" of snowfall since November 1st. Ruidoso isn't any better with only 0.7" measured by the CoCoRaHS Observer 2.9 miles southwest of the Post Office. Ski Apache located west of Ruidoso is struggling also with a seasonal total to date of only 22.5". Their seasonal average (November - April) is 180"

Queen west-southwest of Carlsbad in the Guadalupe Mountains has only measured 5.5". Here at our home in Carlsbad I've measured 0.7" to date.

Sadly the computer forecast models don't offer any hope of things changing anytime soon.
