The weather this last week has been very nice. The wind has calmed down until late evening and the temperatures have soared as much as my riding. I really should have no complaints and in fact I only have one. IS IT EVER GOING TO RAIN HERE? we are so parched. New Mexico is in a drought stage and has been for the last five years. The following pictures show an occurrence that is becoming very common place.
Pray for rain and the return of our firefighters. Our local Hot Shot crew is in Florida and the other local Hot Shot crews are fighting a fire that is over 22 thousand acres north of Silver City near the Cliff Dwellings.
Oh Pat that's so sad. Wouldn't it be nice if they had a way of transporting the flood water of the South to your area to saturate your land? I'm praying you and your area. I believe in miracles. Blessing 1908 days ago
Prayers coming your way! We live in the beetle-infested area of CO where hundreds of thousands of trees were killed by beetles during our drought. I understand your very real fear of wild fire. My son is also a volunteer fire fighter...so prayers are also coming for your firefighters' safety and RAIN....lots of RAIN. Take care. 1908 days ago
That is so unreal when you see the conditions you have there and the flooding going on in other areas. Stay safe - and hope there is nothing too close to you. Happy Mother's day! 1908 days ago
