Plants & Wildlife
May rainfall totals were the highest in 10 years of CoCoRaHS record keeping, even tho 14 of 31 day recorded 0 precip. Rain events were nicely soaking, only 3 days over an inch & the remainder nice & gentle. Garden extremely happy, creek dropping but normal. Some areas of bare soil have started to crack but those are in very sunny location & poor soil. Duff under redwoods still damp, ditches still have slow-moving water  
6/2/2020  IL-BN-19 ILBoone Mildly Wet Continued drying of soil with minimal ponds observed. Some wet areas in nearby fields. Subsurface is drying with wet clay 2-3" deep under sod. Springs show decreased flow although still elevated from typical flow. The local creek is slightly above normal.

Having said normal, some areas of my gardens seem dry, especially for the new plants I have put in.

Delayed report. The last week of May averaged 4 degrees above normal with around 2.5 inches of rainfall, which is more than half the normal rainfall for the month. These conditions helped maintain the lush growth of nearly everything. Soybeans are visible now in many more fields as corn reaches hand high. Hay mowing has begun as grasses and alfalfa are knee high or more. With the recent rains, rivers have come up, but with nearly all within bank rises. Water has begun to accumulate in the South River basin and upper reaches of Red Rock as the reservoir holds back the Des Moines river rising about three feet since last Thursday. Mask wearing in public businesses remains widespread.

It has stayed surprisingly green since the April snow. Grass and weeds continue to grow. Small showers have helped some. Antelope are having young and seem to be doing well. Manzano mountains appear to be normal but dry. Showers have been spotty which is normal. Winds have been about normal.

While many nearby areas are swimming in rain that is not the case for us. Another example of why conditioning monitoring reports are so useful! Our 7 day rain total is only 0.32 inches. Many nearby areas have seen several inches of rain over the past 7 days. We have seen only 1/3 of an inch! Our 14 day total is much greater at 3.48 total inches however most of that has been soaked up and used up afterall it is now June. While cool this morning at 63F (actually very cool for us for June) we have had heat since our last good rainfall. Our 21 day total stands at 4.87 inches & our total for the past month is 5.40 inches of rain. That is slightly above normal for the 30 day period. Just wish more of that 5.40 inches was spread out over the past 7 days. Our 60 day total stands at 8.90 inches total. That is about normal for that timeframe. Well I better be off to water those plants. Until next time...

The farming activities seem t be running fine. Corn,soybeans have been planted and hay and silage making has begun.  
6/2/2020  TX-VV-34 TXVal Verde Near Normal General Awareness
Had a little bit of rain over the past few days. The conditions seemed to have turned from typical springtime to more tropical in nature. Recent rain has showed some improvement on local vegetation.  
6/2/2020  UT-ML-1 UTMillard Moderately Dry General Awareness
The period January - May has been really dry. I have measured only 3.24 inches of precipitation. That is only 43% of the normal 7.45 inches. It has been the driest January - May period in the 25 years I have been keeping track. Add in December and it has been 6 consecutive months of below normal precipitation.  
6/2/2020  WY-HS-18 WYHot Springs Severely Dry Agriculture
Our pasture grasses are drying out and growth has stopped. The cheat grass has stopped growing and heading out. Cheat grass is about 4 inches high. I am repairing a corral and the soil moisture is very poor. When digging with post hole digger the broken up soil is a powder. I would call this a drought.

Just a brief report on current meteorological events. The lack of rain has made the "spring harvest" quite an efficient event. The grain has kept very well through the dry winter and spring. The recent high wind events have made some changes in routine necessary, for example finding a place out of the wind to tarp a grain truck. Large shelterbelts around the farm are always appreciated during these days. Wind gusts of 70 km/hr and more have been common on these days. Only one field visible from this location is regularly seen with soil drifting and blowing are taking place. The other phenomenon is blowing and drifting salt from some pastureland within two miles of my location. Many prairie saline areas remain in permanent cover whether it be grass or what ever salt tolerant plant will cover the soil. Some areas are entirely too salty or flooded to support plant growth. When those areas dry out there are sometimes several inches of salt left on the surface. When these spring wind storms come along, the salt will blow for miles, sending many people rushing to the scene as the blowing salt resembles grass fire smoke. There were two such days during the recent wind events. My parents lived through the dry weather of the 1930s and the 1980s and were they alive today, I am sure the high spring wind and "dry showers" would be familiar to them. In both the 1930s and 1980s, blowing and drifting topsoil were all too common and during the 1980s the cropping community decided that something needed to be done with our cropping practices. Soil conservation became a theme and the practice of "conservation tillage" or "zero till" which had already been developed, was promoted. The early 2000s brought a couple of dry years and the value of zero till was demonstrated by the decent field crops grown with little rainfall. The majority of the acreage grown to field crops on "the great plains" is now planted with no tillage and the previous year's crop residue remains on the surface protecting the soil from high wind and heavy rain events. The large salt flats, remain as grazing land, we do, after all, live on an ancient seabed here in Southern Saskatchewan. Thanks for reading this and for the opportunity to share a little history about weather.
