Plants & Wildlife
Lincoln County, NM

Start Date: 5/7/2018 - End Date: 5/7/2018
Held off moving to severely dry as long as possible, but conditions here are worsening by the day. Grass that had turned green is now mostly brown. Trees are starting to show signs of stress, with brown leaves and needles. Ground out back is cracking - some cracks are very large. Towns around us have gone to level 2 restrictions and the forest service is at very high fire danger. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Alto 1.6 NNE on 5/7/2018
