It has been a very dry fall. There is very little snow in the high country, which adversely affects the ski industry. If we don't get a lot of snow during the winter months, it will be a terrible spring and summer for wildfires.

The first week of December is in the books. A mostly dry week with only 0.19 inches of rain and some very lite snow flakes. The week has turned cold so the pond has thin ice everywhere except where the airator is. The geese like the open water hole during the day but do not stay overnight. There are a few farmers still working the fields. The trees are now bare and waiting for spring. My garden is all set for next spring too!

No rainfall this week. Things are dusty and nearby creek is dry. The only reason I don't go severe dry is that our lake is mostly full and the river is down some. Otherwise, ground is cracked and crumbles with no moisture evident.

The monsoon season was below normal this year. We have had almost no moisture this fall. The scrub oaks are starting to change color which normally does not occur until February or March. Once the oaks lose their leaves they will not likely leaf out until the monsoons start in July unless we have a wet winter and spring. Judging by the long-range forecast this does not appear likely.

Conditions not much changed since last week. Minimal moisture (02"-03" and a couple of traces during the week), but the creeks in town have come up slightly, probably due to a little slowly-melting snow above us in the watershed during the past week. Plant growth has largely stopped, but apparently due to cold temperatures rather than moisture levels.

Two days of beautiful snow / sleet / cold rain. Still very dry but this precipitation should help. Because of the precipitation to the west the lake has slightly risen to 409.24' but still below normal. Everything came to a standstill the end of the week. Very little bird activity, most of the leaves have fallen. Nature is slowing down for the holidays.

With nearly 3 inches of rainfall over the past week, the arid conditions that were developing will be somewhat alleviated. We did not receive the snowfall that the western portion of our state did.. so we have avoided any drastic driving conditions thus far. Rainfall yesterday has left water standing(frozen this morning) in low spots of the yard. Watering of winter-vegetables will be not be required. AGRICULTURE: zero happening right now ENERGY: usage increasing as temperatures dropping both overnight and daytime highs FIRE: threat level should be decreased due to recent precipitation PLANTS: Blooming: eleagnus, saponica camellia, henbit WILDLIFE: cardinals and chick-a-dees and wrens using the seed feeders TOURISM & RECREATION: rainfall on a Saturday delayed or postponed some outdoor holiday civic events WATER SUPPLY & QUALITY: normal

Snow fell the last 3 days with a maximum of 5.5". With the snow, came the first juncos I've seen this season. Our dog is able to find short-tailed shrews under the snow. With the snow, the garden is covered, but the cold frames and greenhouse (unheated) continue to give us salads and greens. The microhydro is running on the small jet. The spring continues to provide great drinking water.

The ground is covered with fresh snow to a depth of 3-6 inches and the ground beneath appears to be frozen. The streams are flowing at normal levels and the ponds are full with a thin layer of ice on the surface. We have seen some fresh deer tracks in the snow. A large flock of geese are making noise on the largest pond. The weekend brought a large influx of visitors to the High Country, however, they all appear to have departed this morning. There are very few people driving on the roads and none are seen out walking. The tubing run and local ski areas have moderate crowds and snow-making is underway.

Observation of numerous curbside storm grates this week reveal impediments to drainage including newly fallen leaves, old grass clippings, old pine straw, wood, and other inorganic waste. More than 20 nearby residences were observed with one or more large brown bags full of newly raked leaves sitting on the concrete curbs in the direct path of draining rain/snow liquids awaiting municipal pick up & disposal. The rising creek waters led to more turbulent flow in excess of 2 knots. The creek surface measured slightly more than 6 feet below the bridge walking surface (bridge surface was observed flooding and impassable during 2017 hurricanes). A 6 inch diameter circular mesh kitchen strainer trapped more than 50 small particles (<1/2 cm length)while held submerged beneath flowing ditch waters for 5 minutes today. A flock of more than 10 adult Canada geese and a few mallards found refuge in the rising waters of Grace Park pond Saturday during the snowstorm. Available sunlight during the snow event was very limited and led a few streetlights to illuminate before 4 PM. A great number of power outages were reported in the area. Tourism and recreation at the usually busy park came to a nearly complete halt during the weekend precipitation. Colder dryer air required application of lip balm and nasal passage moisture enhancing health aids this week.
