11/30/2020  AK-MS-12 AKMatanuska-Susitna Near Normal General Awareness

The past week saw more typical temp ranges with a few days of light snow leaving our snowpack at around 20.0" this Monday morning. Given the current winter storm warning we will likely build on the existing snowpack although rain may also mix in. The moose are once again a bit scarce but the wild birds continue to empty my feeder on a daily basis.

Mostly dry and clear week, with 0.45" precipitation, and November's total of 3.40" gives a 43% of average for water year and the month comes in as the 9th driest in 36 years. However, with the sun lower and the days shorter and colder, the ground is no longer drying out. Mushrooms sprang up this past week, and birds forage the ground and trees --California Quail, Ruby-Crowned Kinglets, Stellar Jays, sapsucker, flickers and Robins. Average high for the week was 61.2F, low 39.7F--10 degrees warmer than the same week last year for a high, and 1 degree up on the low temperature.

Last week's snow was a blessed event. Slow to melt and wet. Producers scrambling to get winter feed purchased, with many having to look out of state. Not near the rabbits but coyotes and birds abundant. Unfortunately, the snow covered a very small area. 15 miles north and east and there was no moisture received. Covid has a lot of business shut down.

This month ends with a total of 2.2-inches of snowfall and 0.65-inches of precipitation. November of 2019 ended with 17.7-inches of snowfall. It is very dry. Where the soil is exposed there are cracks. Birds and squirrels come to my bird bath to get water. There are concerns about water quality due the massive fires in the mountains that started last August. About half of our county is in Severe Drought (D3), while the Rocky Mountains to the west are in Exceptional Drought (D4). If this lack of precipitation lasts much longer there will be worries about water supply. Wildfires are still a concern due to abundance of dry vegetation.

We have received 3.71 inches of rain since October first.Our forty acres of corn was combined the last week of October.The past three years our crops were harvested in late November because we had such a wet fall. For the first time in thirty four years I was able to mow canary grass and cattails along the county tile because it has been so dry.Our acre of wetlands is completely dry.Despite the dry conditions our corn crop averaged 150 bushels to the acre.

Week of November 22-28 • It was a wet week — 4 days of reported rain for a weekly total of 1.61” plus 2 days of “T”. Mill Brook continues to have a flowing channel that makes happy sounds, logs are the basis for little falls, and even some displaced leaf clumps re-congregate and make the basis for tiny ripples that gurgle. AND Small Falls on the Lower Branch has continued to flow all week. The stream began its wet and dry fluctuations about mid-May; Small Falls drying up was the first indicator. In August and September, even the Swimming Hole completely dried up. • Today (Nov 30) is the first day of deer hunting season with shot-gun; so unless a person is actually hunting, its best to just stay out of the woods. • My juncos continue to enjoy my breakfast seeds along with a few other feathered friends.

Little change in conditions over the past week. Short term dryness is no longer evident. Lawns are green and the top layer of soil is somewhat moist. Still seeing some signs of longer term dryness but that seems to have eased as well. Levels on area ponds and lakes are slightly below normal for this time of year but outflow from nearby Ellis Pond has increased to the point where it seems normal for the first time in months. Restrictions in neighboring towns have been lifted, although that may be more indicative of the time of year (less of a need for watering).

11/30/2020  MN-CS-23 MNCass Mildly Dry General Awareness
Little snowfall (<1") in total for month and what did fall melted over frozen ground. Hope we receive some significant snowfall in the coming months to make a good snowpack to melt into thawing ground in spring. With the lack of summer 2020 rains and a future deficit in snowfall through the winter, concern surrounds fire danger before green-up as well as low water table levels and stress on wildlife and plants.

11/29/2020 was mostly cloudy becoming clear night. South southwest winds morning have become north northwest afternoon, evening, night. Mild temperatures morning have cooled to seasonable night and it remains DRY. Hence, Ash Street garden and other central Boone county condition monitoring is now estimated 90% mildly wet and 10% moderately wet. Except for northwest Ash Street garden small plot of oriental vegetables, other remaining plots plots are past harvest and most have already been harvested. A section of small northwest Ash Street garden plot of oriental vegetables has been covered in anticipation of "hard freeze" early morning 12/1/2020!!

Soil conditions remain severely dry this week. A promising mid-week storm only brought strong winds to the metro area as the infamous Albuquerque snow hole developed and only a trace of snow was received. The windy conditions just exasperated the drying conditions and caused visibility problems due to blowing dust on a few days this week. For the month, another 0.53” behind normal added to the precipitation deficit of 6.65” for the YTD. Rio Grande flow holding steady this week around 200 cfs. Aquifer draw down continuing on area wells. Not much wildlife activity this week. Fire danger remain high with continued drying of fuels and not much snow received. Air quality moderate for much of the week due to particulate matter and dust in the air. COVID-19 cases reman high throughout much of the state.

Drought, drought, drought continues to characterize every month this year. Far less than an inch per month of total precip. has been overwhelmed with far greater than an inch per month of evaporation, resulting in a negative net soil moisture level. Every month we keep subtracting from zero to get our net precip., to the point where getting back to zero would be an improvement! Agriculture will be significantly impacted again next year without adequate snow pack this winter. Already we're off to a poor start with little snow in Oct./Nov. Ski areas have not had enough snow to open, let alone the COVID 19 restrictions which keep them closed. So even cross-country and snowshoeing recreation have not happened yet. This puts a strain on public health too as every lack of COVID 19 safe forms of recreation does. This pushes more people into trails, parks and other outdoor recreation areas that are open. Fire danger has barely eased up as fuel moisture levels have not eased up that much, wind and dryness continue, and the only factor keeping Red Flag warnings at bay has been the lower temperatures. Native trees such as Pinon Pine continue to stress and die from the drought, and ground cover is non existent where native grasses and forbs have been grazed off. The lack of rabbits from the drought may be the only thing curbing the spread of Rabbit Hemorragic Disease, RHD, which jumped from domestic to wild rabbit populations in the SW including NM.

With fairly mild weather and not too many all-day rain events, people have been out and about enjoying the outdoors, working, shopping, etc. during this past extended holiday weekend. We’ve cleaned up our gardens and stored away things before winter sets in. It’s mild enough for people to start putting up holiday season decorations — all this while preoccupied with how to stay and keep safe from the dreaded Covid virus!

With only 0.34 inches of rain during the past week, conditions remain moderately dry. However, water levels and water quality remain good. No issues with springs running dry. Well water is good with no indication of low water levels. The risk of fire from outside burning is still moderately high due to the warmer and dryer conditions.
