Ain’t Life Wonderful!   - especially when its clouding up!

In case you hadn’t noticed, this hasn’t been a normal spring. The usually very green pasture grasses this time of year have been looking much drier over the past several days. Even the wildflowers are looking dry and “wilty” at our El Rancho Notso Grande west of town.

Looking at the airport and National Weather Service data on rainfall, we see the following data:

January rainfall:         0 in.   Normal is 1.53 in.

February rainfall:   2.18 in.  Normal is 2.23 in.

March rainfall:       1.76 in.  Normal is 2.79 in.
