New Mexico is big, but dry. Geographically it is the fifth largest state, yet it has the least amount of surface water of all fifty states, as a percentage of its land mass (0.2%). (From Quick Facts About New Mexico).
We have had .04 inch (not a typo) of precipitation so far this year, and that came as a dusting of snow back in February. It's so very dry here right now that I am starting to have dreams about the sound of rain falling on the roof.
Because water/moisture/rainfall has become a distant memory, we took a trip to Caballo Lake a few days ago. We needed to see water, lots of water.
And it really helped to see all that water. We'll still take any excess rainfall you might have that you can send our way.
