    The Mississippi is also running high from excess rain.

    That, of course, just means there will be MORE TO BURN when fire season starts next year! STAY AFRAID! STAY VERY AFRAID!

    MONSOON RAINS! The desert loves this a lot. There will be a prairie dog population boom which means a coyote and hawk boom, too.

    This is like the 1963 monsoon year I remember so fondly. That was the year a lady got mad at me when I sat on Socksie, my old roping horse, and I blocked the road up Sabino Canyon. ‘You can’t cross this road, mam” I said.

    She said, ‘Little girl, get out of the way or I will run you over.’ I didn’t shoot her, I clicked to Socksie and he stepped aside, she drove into the river and I had to use the rope to save her sorry life. Sheriff Burr laughed when he came by to get her car towed.

    She was very lucky I didn’t ride off instead. I was sorely tempted.

    Permanent drought in the Southwest? Just another failed alarmist prediction. It’s been a mild summer here in Phoenix, with an early monsoon season. Just got back from a long walk with the dogs. Another beautiful afternoon and a spectacular sunset. Life in America’s least sustainable city is pretty good.

  5. There is a word for permanent drought. It’s called desert. The SW is already a desert.

  6. emsnews says:

    Yup. The desert evolved its plants in such a way that any drought is survivable. Nearly all the plants in the desert have evolved since the last Ice Age. Virtually none of them are from the previous Interglacial.

  7. Speaking of Red River, this was the Red River 3 weeks ago going from Fannin County TX to Oklahoma. Not exactly dry!
