Excessive Rainfall Has Already Fallen - Flash Flooding Ongoing!

8-8-2021.
Artesia, NM.

With the abundant summer rains, the needle grass is the highest and thickest I've seen in years. Bad news come this fall, winter, and spring during our windy season. The fire danger locally will be through the roof because of this stuff. Especially when it piles high (6' or higher in some cases) against fences, buildings, etc.
