Yearly moisture still is below 4". A few showers but no good rains yet. Fire ban briefly lifted with restrictions. Things are greener but not growing much. Quail, coyotes and deer closer to buildings looking for food. Boat restrictions on lakes due to water levels. Nights are usually dusty due to dry feedlot. Hay is scarce and expensive. A lot of producers are feeding hay and kale already. Many are weening and selling early. CoCoRaHS Report from Station #Ordway 1.3 E on 8/6/2018
