Bummer alert

10 01 2021

*Spoiler* alert: The bummer is NOT Corazon. πŸ™‚

The bummer, as you can see from the endless brown above (NOT Corazon, who, of course, is black and white), is the utter lack of snow yesterday, despite the teasing forecast that got our hopes up. I’m not sure what’s worse: snow in the forecast that never happens … or endless days of straight-up zero percent chance that it’ll happen.

It sure is dry, dry here in Aztec. Let’s have rain here or snow.

Rain or snow or both. The time for pickiness is past! (Though I really hope for snow. :))

I know, TJ. Is it better to be constantly disappointed or just straight out know that moisture is never going to come here. I think I hate the predictions that don’t come to fruition the most – the yoyo effect. It’s just better to know the awful truth and prepare for it. Glad those ponies know how to find what water exists – clever critters.

I think I agree. … The forecasts were pretty close to accurate there for a while. What happened? Yes, thank goodness for the clever wild ponies and their knowledge of secret water.

Disappointed here too. Said maybe rain, but it didn’t happen. πŸ˜‘πŸ™

Yes, you all need rain badly, too.

:(. Sorry to hear no moisture in your area – we got some, but not much and it is already melting – but, sigh, some is better than nothing! Hope you get nice little snow falls here and there that melt, sink in and leave forage available, then fall again, melt, sink in – – I’m afraid to pray hard for a lot of snow – bad blizzards and deep, heavy snows leave animals in same/more risk than no snow at all, don’t they? here and there? I talked to a family friend last week, and she was telling me about the blizzard of ’49 (she was in Nebraska at the time) and we talked about the blizzard of ’77 (Eastern Colorado) and my latest ‘fun trip’ through the Blizzard of 2019 during which I shoveled more snow to dig out than I had had to since the Blizzard of ’97 (? or was it ’98?) and driving home from Cripple Creek job to Woodland Park home – on Friday, and digging out on Sunday – Sigh – I try to be carefully worded in my ‘prayers’ because, well, blizzards, broken trees, infrastructure and life form damage – – πŸ˜€

My parents in Texas got FIVE INCHES of snow yesterday. What happened to our snow? No, we don’t want weather of the devastating kind … but I’m not real choosy at this point; we need moisture in an excruciatingly desperate way. πŸ™‚
