Rain, rain, and more rain. People in Wyoming shouldn’t complain about rain. For an area that receives only 14″ of it throughout a year, every little bit helps. We usually measure rainfall in hundredths of an inch!
This March was the second wettest that Johnny has recorded in all his years of recording the weather. This April has been wet as well, showing 3.35″ on my unofficial rain guage.
It’s wet. It’s soggy. It’s a slurpy, slick, gooshy, walk, ride, or drive. We can’t get in the fields, we’re slow about getting cattle out where they need to be, it’s beginning to stack up around here!
Western Wyoming is still sitting on 130-190 % of normal snowfall. Eastern Wyoming is still listed as being in a drought. This water cycle thing is exciting to watch.
The rain could stop and we could not see any until fall. We’re trying really hard not to whine.
