Yeah we are starting our year with very low reserves and we haven't seen rain since I think late AprilNo thanks. I'm one of those weird Texans that likes the rain because I know the faucet is about to shut off for a year and the doomsday drought people will start up again.
You guys are in rough shape for water also. Been watching the reporting on the reservoirs, looking scary for Utah. California is screwed too.Utah has been burning lots this year already. 2 fires near enough to me I can see them from my house. One started yesterday and took off. Couple hundred acres in a few hours. We are in a bad drought and it's gonna be a rough year. Currently 5 going in the state. https://utahfireinfo.gov/active-wildfires/
Yeah I've driven by 6 of my local reservoirs and they are lower than I've ever seen them. Ended last year really low and didn't get enough snow to bring them up at all this spring. My irrigation water is worth half what it normally is and I expect it to get shut off in July. Which will be really bad for pastures and hay for me. Most farmers I know around here are selling as many animals as they can to prepare for winter since hay prices are nuts also.You guys are in rough shape for water also.

News didnt think it’s the same fire, or getting bad info. Fire north of Steamboat just across the border. They said it started yesterday. But the area is where you described. No info in inciwebWe have a fire up here, over in the Sierra Madres near Encampment. Lightning. Hasn't hit Inciweb yet, saw a pic, rugged hillside with no access. 25 acres in heavy beetle kill, they are hitting it with air tankers, if they don't get it out right now its going to get real big. It shouldn't even be able to be on fire yet, there should still be melting snow there.
There was some info on facebook but I don't use it. Just saw it at work from some guys. Firefighter buddy knew about it, I think they are calling it North Fork fire. They had 2 hand crews hike in to it and used a ton of bucket drops. Kept it small so far but it was spotted Sunday. There could easily be 2 fires, its way drier than it should be. We have had lightning and wind up here each evening .News didnt think it’s the same fire, or getting bad info. Fire north of Steamboat just across the border. They said it started yesterday.

We’ve been able to see haze for the last two nights
