Tourism & Recreation
Lincoln County, NM

Start Date: 4/2/2018 - End Date: 4/2/2018
Dry conditions abound here. What precip we've had isn't enough to make a dent. Ski Apache has closed after a very disappointing season. Having to water our pine seedlings more often, as warm temps and wind are drying out the soil faster. Ground in the back yard has started to crack in places. Pollen has been very high and spores are being blown by the wind. Everyone is suffering - sneezing and wheezing. 7-day forecast doesn't call for any precip. Keeping condition scale at moderate because grass is turning green and deciduous trees are budding. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Alto 1.6 NNE on 4/2/2018
