Seattle:
Climate change.
I am looking at Seattle and New Zealand.
We had a fire when you were here, so happy the fire trucks were running.
We barely had any snow this winter and rain, what’s that?
Been here over 20 years and it’s getting worse each year.

Rain Dance.

I recently moved here from the Seattle area, and wow! It's so dry and hot out here so early in the year. Breaking records with heat and dryness seem to be the current problem, and seeing the signs on the freeway saying high danger from fires don't help. I've been visiting down here for the last three years and thought it might be a nice place to try up until now! I keep hearing fire trucks going by ....

2018 Arizona Monsoon

According to the almanac the precipitation forecast for Arizona (Southern part of the state) for our annual monsoon season, is to be below average. Yet we are reading in the news that they say there is a good chance for above average rainfall for us. What's it going to be?? No one really knows, do they? Except God. I will keep my trust in Him for our weather.

Rain

Dear Lord please let the rainfall be above-average or at least normal

Northern Arizona - dry, dry, dry

We live in Prescott Valley where there were wildfire evacuations this past week - it's a mile high desert climate -- and was a welcome relief from Phoenix where we used to live. Two Summers ago we had record rains in August and now I don't even need one hand to count the number of times it's rained in the past year (and that's being generous because you need to include sprinkles!). Let's do a group rain dance for some good monsoons for all of the Southwest!!!

rain dance for Monsoon

We certainly need the rain and hopefully it will happen before long....but instead of a rain dance, lets try a group prayer. Maybe if enough of us ask for rain the ONE that can bring it to Arizona will see that it happens.

Yes wonderful idea!

Ruidoso, NM - Hot & Dry

Just read Paula's comment about weather in Roswell, NM, about 75 miles east of Ruidoso. While Roswell is typically warmer than Ruidoso most of the year (Ruidoso's at 7,200 ft, Roswell at 3,500) the rain situation is just as critical. Can't even remember the last time it rained, seems like well over a year ago. On top of that, no snow fall this past winter. No snow cap at all. Hunters here say the tall trees here haven't changed to that dry dull color they get from lack of moisture (hopefully trees are getting moisture from underground because risk of fire here is severe every day), but for human folk, we desperately need some rain. Also, it's only early May and today was record high of 85. With mid to high 80's expected to remain for a few weeks. I've lived here for 15 years and definitely see a warming trend. I love New Mexico, but moved up in the mountains for the cooler weather and four seasons. Now it feels like the White Sands Desert weather is slowly creeping up the mountain for good. It's scary to think that this may become the norm for us at higher elevations. Next move might have to be to Belize. At least I can jump in crystal blue water and cool off!

moisture and heat

we have not had any moisture in Roswell NM for about 175 days and here it is early April and today we are at 94 degrees. You don't even include any of this in your info for the desert.

Heat and Dust in NM

I am currently out of state but friends are telling me of terrible dust and how there is now a red-flag alert for AZ and NM for fires...it is surprising not highlighted here somehow...
