I spent the day today hiking around the Pecos Wilderness in New Mexico, where I used to work as a wilderness ranger. Everything looks exactly the same as it did 30 years ago. The Santa Barbara River and the Rio Grande were both the highest I have ever seen them in October.
Bloomberg says that New Mexico is in a terrible drought and all the trees are dying. The man is completely FOS. I have seen no signs of any kind of tree die off anywhere in Northern New Mexico.
