Most people may not expect this, but Albuquerque has a very wet summer most of the time. The summer monsoons usually bring in a lot of rain especially during June and July. We can get near half our rain for the year this way. But this year is different. Instead we are treated to temperatures in the high 90’s. Although not unusual to get temperatures this high, its unusual to get them this high for this many days. They say a ridge of high pressure is keeping the summer monsoons away from New Mexico and it may let up next week.
I blame the lack of rain (partially) on my issues getting the grass growing and for all the bugs that have invaded our house. We have ants, beetles and all kinds bugs that we usually don’t see in the house.
We have been pretty lucky not to have a lot of water restrictions imposed on us, but if the rain doesn’t come soon next spring is going to be unpleasant.
