4/22/2019  AK-MS-12 AKMatanuska-Susitna Mildly Dry General Awareness
Plants & Wildlife
Snow cover is becoming difficult to measure as only around 50% of the ground is covered although the range of snow depths is very large. This morning I measured 2.5" of snow pack with a melted value of 0.93" of liquid water. The moose remain absent and even their normal markings (droppings, etc.) have vanished. They are well back in the boreal forest birthing calves and preparing for summer.

Typical April weather. Cloud up, wind blow, clouds move out. Dirt is already moving this morning. Cottontails have taken over the yard, eating weeds. Grass is photosynthesizing. It's going to need some moisture to keep going.  
4/22/2019  CO-LR-1100 COLarimer Near Normal General Awareness
Another 0.24" over the past week. Ground conditions are about normal for this time of year given the precipitation but also countered by above normal temperatures (a high of 79F on 20 April) and moderate winds (gusting to 34 mph on 18 April) that increased surface evaporation. Plum tree has white flowers, ash has larger bugs, peach is budding, and lawn grass will need to be cut soon.

It has been 10 days since the last rain with good ground drying days. Farmers have been very busy trying to make up for lost time due to wet conditions of early April. There's nothing like the emerald green of early spring and the start of the trees leafing out along with the warmer temperatures.

My husband and I flew out of Charlotte, NC to Tulsa, OK (April 14-19) for a visit with his family. Spring wx impacted the entire trip. Our flight from NC to OK was delayed several times due to severe weather and snow. T-storms slowed down our drive time, but we made the airport with time to spare. Our pilot was in Chicago; he was dealing with snow, so we had more time to spare. More storms made the first 20 minutes of flight was a roller coaster ride in the dark; very scary. Lots of wind in Tulsa, but the weather mostly cooperated. My husband and I got to tour the NWS/SPC in Norman OK and eat at The Flying Cow Cafe. Super fun. Our flight back to Charlotte was delayed due to severe wx in the Charlotte area. After about 20 minutes into the flight, I noticed the clouds beneath us, so I got out my camera and took photos. However, the clouds began to change from happy flat cumulus to growing cumulus to (what looked to me) overshooting tops. Fascinating! I waited to be the last passenger off and spoke to the captain. He was glad to answer my questions: 35,000 feet cruising altitude at 525 mph. Wow! I was amazed at how my flowers had changed in five days. I'll write about that tomorrow.

4/22/2019  NC-WK-185 NCWake Moderately Wet General Awareness
Relief, Response & Restrictions
Impacts from rain this week include seeking alternative routes to bike to work to avoid flat areas where wind and rain effects increase while being aware of pre-existing power lines and utilities. The recently installed weather stripping on the door tightened up after the rain, so I may have to use hand tools to adjust it again. I emptied the makeshift French drain bucket that collects and channels air conditioning condensate more than 12 inches below ground and found stagnant water beneath the bucket even before the heavy rain event.A big part tree branch fell very close to the residential roof while I was at work which was cause for concern for other occupants under the same roof.

Last Friday it poured! My rain gauge sits nearer the house in the winter time and is protected on the east side. Most of our rain does not come from that direction, but this storm did send rain from the east. Even so, we had 1.92 inches of rain. Neighbors (on other side of mountains) reported more than 4 inches. Most of the trees are leafing out now. And the dogwoods and redbuds are blooming. The soil is wet, but not soggy - we live near the top of the ridge and rarely see sitting water. The rivers and streams nearby are all full and muddy, but not overflowing.

We had some heavy and copious rain Friday into Saturday which temporarily brought local rivers and streams up to the tops of their banks and increased their flow speed. But conditions are not like they were 3-6 months ago. There is no standing water nor seepage from higher terrain onto lower road surfaces. Grass is growing and in need of mowing. Flowers and trees are budding.

We’ve had rain on three days amounting to 0.51”. The heaviest was Friday at 3:45 PM when that front that did a lot damage across the country arrived. It had lost a lot of it’s strength but we still got a 60 MPH gust the airport in Savannah. A few trees down on the island but no damage that I’ve heard of. It moved out in a few hours and was gone. Clearing skies and strong winds followed. Animals: The Cedar Wax Wings arrived the day after my last report and have ravished our mulberry trees…my, my, my, can they ever eat berries. We’ve picked all we want so they are welcome to them. Also Summer Tanagers, Indigo Buntings and wood peckers like them. Wonderful trees for bird watching for sure. Squirrels are coming back to this end of the island. Lots more in the roads and they like mulberries too. Tourists: Sunny days and they come. Cloudy, windy, they stay away. Garden: Still putting a few things in like egg plants, cukes and such. The garlic is blooming so enjoying garlic spears. I break them out and eat them like asparagus..roasted in the oven is good too. Removing them from the plant makes the cloves grow bigger. Bugs: Gally-nipper mosquitoes at the beach. they take a gallon of blood to the nip…so that’s what my grandfather named them.:)) You feel like a big spider with wings is after you. That’s it mates..enjoy this dynamic time of the year while it’s still cool. The heat is coming. Till next time..Cheers to ya! Daufuskie Dundee

This past week saw much needed drier conditions with little precipitation. Warmer, sunny and breezy days has helped dry out surface soil. I saw farmers testing tillage conditions on lighter soils, but no widespread activity yet. You can see that the soil is still wet, and there is still ponding in low areas., but they are drying down. Low land river bottoms are also showing drain off, but has a long way to go with no added rain. Ditches are receeding, but marshes and lakes are still full. The Baraboo River is now running a little above normal, but the Wisconsin River is above flood stage and hopefully stays within its banks. Things are greening up, but there is still the threat of spring wildfires. The lawns and fields are still soft under foot with good surface moisture.

The country is getting greener and greener. The grass is growing very well. My fields dried out enough that I was finally able to start field work, but after last nights rain I will have to wait a day before doing more. Just below the surface, the soil is moist, which is very good for this late in April.
