Another Very Wet Year In Fort Collins

Following the dry years from 2000-2007, we are having another very wet growing season in Fort Collins, with about 10 inches of rain over the last 10 weeks.

I’ve never seen it wet and green like this at the end of July.

The climate is cyclical, and shows no long term trends. People who claim it is changing significantly due to the tiny changes in CO2 (0.0001 mole fraction) over the last century – are either idiots or criminals.

    Do you know how to make a geologist laugh?

    Have a “climate expert” talk about “long term trends“.

    Devastating here in Indiana. Driving up I-69 and over on US 224 it is really ugly in the fields. square miles of corn and soybeans drown out. What isn’t gone is severely stunted. It seems my area in central Indiana got less than the Hoosiers north and south of us but it’s pretty clear that the exceptionally wet spring and summer this year are a disaster for most Hoosier farmers.

    As drove east in Ohio along US 30 the fields finally started looking the way they should this time of year.

    The Vineyards up along lake Erie in PA and NY look to be doing fine to my untrained eye.

      Up here in Alberta, county after county are declaring crop failures…due to lack of moisture….for years, we have had great rainfall….this year, nope, so it MUST be that CO2 targeted us

      The vineyards that were foolish enough to believe in the computer-generated fantasy models of “future warming” and thus planted warmer region grapes have all gotten badly burned by the losses of those delicate grape vines. Most of the former “believers” are replanting / have replanted with tougher american hybrid varieties.

      The vineyards that didn’t believe the hype and have been growing the tougher hybrids are doing quite well. University of Minnesota has quite a few new promising hybrids that are tough enough and make excellent wine…

    • Are those the concord grape (Welches) vineyards? Good for jelly, bad for wine.

          I don’t know for sure but I do know that some of the places have tasting rooms so at least some of those vineyards are producing wine I guess. I will say there aren’t as many of those wine tasting signs along that stretch of I-90 as there are in other areas further south.

    The picture must be of a drought llama. It looks pretty brown to me.

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
