A rather damp and gray period did see some sunny weather along with 0.58" of rainfall which pushed June's current total to 1.18" which is a bit low. All the flora has greened up nicely and appears to be growing quite well. Not as many wild birds around but I believe many are now nesting back in the boreal forest. There are moose in the area as well and they sure do love the dwarf willow on my property. During a few sunny days we did see high temps in the upper seventies which felt pretty warm.

A dry week with an average high of 74.0F and low of 53.2F--ETo 0.54". Ruth Reservoir was at 95% on 6/17 and the Mad River at Arcata was 5.70 feet with a flow of 64.7 cfs, a drop of 23 cfs from last week. The Wiyot Tribe declared a state of emergency on 4 rivers, the Mad, Elk, Eel and Van Duzen, due to the drought and low flows because of its impact on their sacred cultural resources. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission last week said the 4 dams on the Klamath River, owned by PacifiCorp, could be transferred to the Klamath River Renewal Project, which plans to remove them. This will open up 420 miles of spawning habitat. And the California Fish & Game Commission declared the Upper Klamath and Trinity Spring Chinook an endangered species. Grass and weeds under the redwoods still green, and Himalaya blackberries blooming. Birds, butterflies and dragonflies about daily, and bats after the sun goes down.

Earlier, wet spring gave way to a lengthy period of no significant precipitation, but grasses, shrubs and trees grew well from the earlier moisture. Result has been heavy grass growth that the cattle can't keep up with, now drying and ready to burn with the least spark, last night's rain not withstanding.

The Drought Monitor shows the San Luis Valley as a no drought area. While it is true that our precipitation in the water year has been normal, normal is very low (less than the Sahara desert). What they have failed to account for is the fact that subsoil moisture is much worse, having followed a very dry year last year. The mountains, from which comes our irrigation water, are just soaking up the snow melt and cropland is so dry that what little irrigation water we get soaks away without covering the ground well. Hence, I still say we are in a severe drought!

Yesterday we had a lot of rain. I measured 3" of rain this morning (6/21/2021) at 0700. The grass is growing fast now and plants are looking fresh. In some areas, the soil is saturated with water right now. The water levels in surrounding canals and lakes have gone up slightly. In the week of 6/19/2021, I recorded over 4.25" of rain. The week before I only recorded 0.64". Overall vegetation is recovering well but as I mentioned, water levels are still slightly below "normal."

We have been in the D2 "Severe Drought" for about 10 weeks now. After about a 70% of normal snow pack, we have received 2% of our average precipitation for June. We only got 50% of our average in May (normally our wettest month). Long running springs have dried up, river flows are similar to late August/September. Surface water users have all been put on notice of severe reductions. We could use some rain... Fires to follow.

Days of the past week were consistent in being hot and dry, unusual for this time of year in IA. Concerns were voiced about the droughty conditions and when would it end as most western states experiencing the same. However, on Sunday, some rain developed in the area early that morning and more wide spread later that evening. The grass and plants changed overnight with brighter green coloring. The corn leaves were waving in the breeze instead of being curled in self protection. The recent rain provides a short reprieve as an inch doesn't replace the needed moisture that has been lost as the ground is dry more than a foot into the soil.

Conditions remain unchanged but have trended near the lower end of the normal range. Some rainfall over the past week has helped with short term dryness although lawns are showing some dry spots in sunny areas. Levels on ponds and lakes remain high. Trees and flowering plants are not showing any signs of stress due to dryness. No watering restrictions are in place.

I’ve had to water my garden almost everyday except for a couple days when we received almost a half inch of rain over 3 days and today where we received 0.73”. I’ve only cut grass twice since May. I usually cut weekly. Lawn has brown areas. We’ve had RedFlag days and the Hiawatha National Forest has issued a Stage 1 fire alert that restricted grill use and banned fireworks. We’ve had several fires in the UP this season and we’ve met fire crews from other states that are here. Note: our winter gave us half the snow we usually see at a little over 100”! Rain has been down this year But it’s a sharp reversal of the last few years where we have seen above normal snow and rain. So our lakes and rivers are down but not yet abnormally low. One good thing at least to humans is less mosquitoes this year. Flies and ants are more common however.

Conditions are really dry. All of our dirt livestock tanks are dry and have been for more than 6 months. The little pasture grass that attempts to green up dries out within a day or two. Even the mesquites are feeling the effect of no moisture as some have leaved out but with minimal leaf production. Our dirt roads have turned to powder and any significant breeze fills the air with dirt and dust. Today the air is filled with a haze and the smell of smoke from regional fires.

Continued dry with 0.15" of precipitation recorded over the past week. Showers and thunderstorms on most days, but each often brought only a trace of rain. Temperatures were well above normal for this time of year, with highs averaging 96F and lows 61F (a peak high of 100F on 14 June) over the week. Afternoon relative humidity dropped below 20% on each day, but on only one day did it drop below 10% (an improvement over previous weeks!). Ground conditions remain very dry yet native vegetation seems to be coping. We've accumulated 0.81" of rainfall month-to-date, which is slightly above average for June despite the longer-term drought.

After a very dry May, June has been just the opposite, thankfully. Our grass is green and lush as are surrounding plants and crops. Fire hazard is way down and no warnings in this area. Birds are still making nests and raising their young. Pollinators like butterflies are slightly decreased in numbers as are snakes.

Yesterday's rainfall of 0.59 inches was the amount received in the past 8 days. However, we have surpassed the normal monthly average of 4.02 inches with a total of 4.14 inches. Even with all the rain from yesterday, the low wet spot is damp and I can hardly make a discernible footprint. The Mildly Dry selection is due to days without rain followed by brief but heavy downpours which does not allow for a ground soaking event. The nuts on the Shagbark Hickory are around 26 mm in diameter while the Pyracantha berries are near 3 mm. The rose hips are noticeable but there are no flowers. The Forsythia is doing well. The limbs of the shaded Glossy Abelia are very breakable. Most of the flowers on the Gardenia are wilting or have fallen off. The flowers on the other Glossy Abelia are in the process of wilting, falling off and regenerating(?). The Holly Bush berries are about 7 mm in diameter. We saw a fledgling crow asking to be fed yesterday. We are not seeing many birds as the natural foods are becoming abundant.

We had 0.07 inches of rain last week and just over 2 inches of rain for the month. Conditions are mildly dry but water levels in creeks and springs is still good. The risk of fire from outside burning is higher as well. Pastures, hay fields, gardens and seedling beds are doing okay but some additional rain would help the new growth.

We were lucky with rain earlier in season; those were gentle and soaking. This month we've had two crazy storms, the most recent yesterday as Tropical Storm Claudette(?) raged through. Crazy winds blasted through so that rain has been horizontal or almost so. Soil that looks stable enough was eroding, especially on our slope. Rain barrels and mini ponds have been overwhelmed. I haven't been to the lake recently but I'm sure it's up. The engineered creek was HIGH HIGH in its bed but it does drop quickly (since it's engineered to do so). This is probably fantastic for water supply as the reservoirs are likely in need of refilling after the high demand spring (sprinklers). I think we're up to normal or high normal, but the last years have been so wet it's hard to know /remember "normal". I'm sure those out west are jealous; we too wish we could send rain our your way! Plants are happy; the grass and shallow rooted ones were having a bit of a hard time but most had been doing okay; they're probably happy now (if they weren't seedlings which may have washed away). I have driven past crops but can't really speak to their vitality; I presume good...?
