Another week without any precipitation. What few plants are still green are all showing drought stress. Temps seldom even go below freezing (elevation 7200) and days are in the mid to upper 60s and even low 70s. Days are frequently windy. Several wildfires occurred, prescribed burning progressing well with excellent results. Small ponds and creeks and even some springs near or mostly dry.
