Comparing The COVID-19 Pandemic - To The Spanish Flu Pandemic Of 1918.

Why Does COVID-19 Sound Familiar? Is history in the process of repeating itself? I believe it is. We've seen this movie before but none of us (including me or anyone I know) was alive to see the original. We are however living the nightmare of the sequel.  I used a number of online sources to come up with the article I wrote below and pieced together below including YouTube Videos  and  Wikipedia . Comparing The Spanish Flu Pandemic Of 1918 & COVID-19 Now. The 1918 influenza pandemic (nicknamed the Spanish Flu) was the most severe pandemic in recent history. It was caused by an H1N1 virus with genes of avian origin (bird flu). Although there is no universal consensus regarding where the virus originated, it spread worldwide from 1918-1919.   As my wife has pointed out isn't it odd that many of these flu outbreaks originate in China?

Enjoy Saturday's Cool Temps - They Won't Last. An early taste of summertime temperatures is coming next week. High temperatures will be seasonably mild on Saturday with highs in the 50's 60's, and near 70 in the mountains with the upper 70's to near 80 across the Southeastern Plains of New Mexico. Come Monday our high temperatures are forecast to soar up into the upper 90's. A few spots very well may hit the century mark for the first time this year. Daily record highs look to be tied or possibly broken across the local area Monday and Tuesday and maybe again next Friday. Thunderstorms could possibly return next weekend but that's too far away to be sure for now. The Tru

My time-lapse video (sped up 14x the normal speed) from our backyard in Carlsbad, New Mexico Saturday evening of Altocumulus Standing Lenticular Clouds (ACSL) at around 11,000 feet above the ground. Looking west at sunset. Left of center in the video on is my wind vane and anemometer for my Davis Vantage Pro2 Plus Wireless Home Weather Station. Notice the birds darting in and out of the video.

A Cold White Mid-April Morning For Many In New Mexico.

RTMA Temperatures. At 7 AM MDT This Tuesday Morning. Reported Low Temperatures Tuesday Morning. A Cold April Morning In New Mexico. With snow cover over parts of New Mexico this morning the thermometer fell out in many places. Some single-digit lows were reported in the northern mountains. Here in Carlsbad, I dropped down to 37ºF.  The Carlsbad Airport  reported 36ºF which is chilly compared to the normal for the date of 46ºF. But that's not even close to the record low of 24ºF set at the airport back in 1933. By the way on April 14th, 1928 the Carlsbad Climate Co-Op Station recorded 7" of snow on the ground.  GFS 16-Day Temperature Forecasts Roswell. Carlsbad. Sierra Blanca Regional Airport. (Near Ruidoso). For now, anyway, the models are calling for much warmer temperatures for the near-term and extended period. Let's see how long that lasts.  New Mexico Reported Snowfall Totals.
