I missed last weekend reporting. There was a flash flood abt 3-4 miles from us which resulted in the drowning of 10 people in one family. Ages 1-60. The last body was found mid-week several miles downstream. We heard a bear had gotten to the body. At the time of that event we had .88" in about 25 minutes. Flooding didn't affect us. In fact after 5.02" in July we don't have any standing water nor much mud. It was just so dry before the rains. Lots of traffic on the hiways and events that bring people up from the valley. The Highline Fire in June contributed to the flash flood because of the downed trees. We are getting a little rain every day and have gotten over the 30 year average which is 2.64"

Condition report July 10th to 23rd. No rain, which is usual. It's very dry. Six days of 14 have had high temp of > 100F (108F on July 17th). Many flowers have bloomed early; aster is now blooming in backyard. Trachelium caeruleum (perennial blue lace flower) finished blooming, although one looks like it may re-bloom, which would be fun as it's a great flower. Sea holly is about finished. This heat is tough; there are fewer re-blooms on salvias despite diligent deadheading. The Society Garlic, Marigold Day of the Dead, and red abutilon are continue to flower well. The purple bottle brush (Callistemon Violaceus) is re-blooming and it's full of bees. Two of the three Robin's eggs hatched. Both fledged July 16th. I see Mom and one baby out foraging most days, but have not seen two babies at once. There continues to be many beautiful dragonflies - bright copper and blue damselflies! The last few days, there are more butterflies, but I've only seen a monarch a couple of times. I will talk to neighbors about planting at least one or two plants to try to entice more monarchs next year. Yesterday was exciting - a tiny caterpillar is feeding on the passion vine. Several fires, none close, but some hazy days.

Another significant rainfall this several days ago has left things pretty moist. The soil was still holding a good amount of moisture before more than an inch of rain fell. Now it's wet. Some shrubs around the station, like the Corylus americana, are showing effects of being over-watered, but most of the plants here are responding very well to all the rain. So are the mosquitoes, populations of which have exploded in the last week or so. Have seen some cardinals around a lot lately, some wrens, a few sparrows and doves, but otherwise birds seem a little scarce.

This week was another great week for me although very hot and humid. I recorded a total rain fall of 1.39 inches from local storms that at times were heavy but not long lived. The fields look great, my yard has greened up very nicely, and the garden is flying along with tomatoes, green peppers and cucumbers almost ready to start picking. The Japanese Beetles are still around and I am fighting them in my apple trees but they keep coming back. They should start to dye naturally by the start of August but I suspect that they have eaten enough leaves that my apple harvest will be reduced. Once they find a source of food they like they send out a smell that brings other beetles and they just keep coming to feed and breed. Our creeks are all flowing a little high for July but no problem at all. My pond is at the overflow but not flowing out. Over all these rains have really helped the local crops and if we can get some more in August we should do very well.

This was going to be mildly dry, but the 1.35" we've received overnight (and it's still raining) has bumped it up some. Have had to water both the garden and the yard; ground was beginning to pull away from the house foundation. Grass showing heat stress and insects have not been nearly as active as they have been over the past month or so.

Air Quality Alerts and a Heat Advisories were in effect from Thursday thru Saturday as temps climbed into the low 90's with very humid conditions. Very dry this past week with only a few spotty showers towards the end of the week. Temps were at or slightly above normal for the week. Soil Temps have climbed with the recent heat and Soil Moisture readings have moderated near the 45 Centibar mark at the 6 inch depth after reaching a high of 48 Centibars, which is moderately dry. Surface soils are hard compact and very dry. Lawns and some shrubs and trees continue to show browning & other distress from the below normal rainfall for this year...Weeds, other lawn diseases and spider mites are rampant from the wild winter are causing additional problems with lawns and shrubs. Mowing caused a lot of dust to become airborne. **High Centibar Readings mean drier soil... **Current Soil Readings @ 7am: 6 in. Depth: Soil Temp 80F...Soil Moisture: 46 Centibars.. 24 in. Depth: Soil Temp: 76F..Soil Moisture:35 Centibars.. 36 in. Depth: Soil Temp: 70F..Soil Moisture 24 Centibars.. Corn on farms nearby are just nearing 5.5 feet high. Growth is slow.

We have had 1.0" of rain since this time last week. It seems very slightly wet, but is really about normal. (Although this part of summer used to be rather dry, so is it really normal?) Crops and mosquitoes are growing well, detasslers are out working, there are too many zucchini in the garden. Lawns in our area are looking great! I know from driving here and there that some parts of the state are quite dry, so it's nice to have everything looking good here.

Although it's rained more heavily elsewhere in SW New Mexico, we've had only .66" of rain during the past week and a total of .70" for the past two weeks. Conditions haven't changed greatly since my last report. Grass and other vegetation by the roadsides is quite green, as are shrubs on the hills and plains. There has been more rain higher in our watershed, but it hasn't been reflected yet in the flow of the creek through town. It continues to flow, but at a fairly low volume. During the past week, I noticed some water ponding by roadsides a day or two after the last rain, so stock ponds are likely to have been recharged somewhat. Soil moisture has increased due to the rains and the frequent cloud cover slowing evaporation. I'm needing to water garden plants less often than in recent weeks.

Hit or Miss thunderstorms over the past week left us with sufficient moisture as the end of the week heated up, winds increased, and chances of showers reduced. Agriculture: soy and cotton just starting to blossom in most areas. ENERGY: electric usage high due to heat advisories this week / FIRE level likely increasing due to increase in winds; Plants: Crepe Myrtles and Magnolias seem to be what our bees are foraging upon right now as this is the time of year that the available forage lessens; Wildlife: birds and insects are quiet during the heat of the day Tourism and Rec: weather has not been an issue, other than towards the end of this past week due to the heat advisories Water & Supply: normal

The only rain of the week was .08" this morning. Despite the dryness the conditions seem normal. Under the smallest amount of shade the soil is moist. In the full sun of the garden, the soil is moist a couple inches down as I learned when I finished digging the garlics. Beans and tomatoes are ripening. I've only watered where I've planted seeds for fall. Box turtles are on the move--rescued one from the road. Fawns are at their mothers' heels. Butterflies are feeding at our flower garden, especially pipevine swallowtails, angle wings, and skippers. The hummingbirds are draining the feeder quickly with this year's young bringing their appetite. The microhydro is running on the small jet. The French Broad River's flow has dropped below normal. Our drinking spring remains excellent quality and quantity.

The top soil has dried out from the previous weeks precip, resulting in required watering of the garden in the latter half of the week.

We came in at just over an inch of rain for the week, but we were lucky! The 0.65 inches we got Friday night was from a single storm cell that seemed to be centered over us! Most folks in the area got nothing. We continue to water the garden and new flowering plants frequently, though, because it's very hot and humid between showers. Everything is growing well and livestock has plenty to eat. We had the chance to go to Lake Hartwell for some swimming this week and had a good time in spite of the low lake levels (still 6.21 feet below full pool).
