The official high today was 104 and unofficially it was 106 in downtown.

Lamar officially got up to 111 and as I posted this was still 107. Pueblo is now 99.

now that is pretty harsh for June and might be downright ominous for 2013.
the Yahoo weather forecasts don't look too bad, though.
unfortunately, the wildfire situation is looking bleak.

We will see. I do think Pueblo will have 3 more days above 100 before we cool off to the mid and maybe low 90s this weekend. I am talking about unofficial highs in downtown.

Unofficially Pueblo hit 100 in downtown today around 4:30 pm. This is the 3rd day in a row with a high temperature above 100. Tomorrow I will see if the stretch goes into 4.

Very odd weather day in Pueblo today. It did not make 100, only in the low 90's. However it was hazy, smoky, cloudy, windy and very dry with the humidity around 10%. I wonder if that means we will have a warm over night low?

Sounds like what's left of Black Forest will be settling on your Kentucky bluegrass lawn tonight.

Meanwhile, according to the Cortez Journal the drought in southwest Colorado has been “upgraded” from severe (D2) to extreme (D3). Lucky us. The only part of Colorado worse off than we are is the southeast quadrant. The Journal reports major dust storms in the Lamar and La Junta regions. You’re probably actually seeing the top soil that is being stripped off by the high winds and bone dry conditions.

Colorado is off to a bad start of the summer, and it’s not even mid June yet. Tonight we had one of those eerie sunsets with an orange-yellow sky. Looked like smoke in the air, but must have been dust here, as well.

We defiantly need some moisture in the state.

Pueblo just had a haboob, that is a dust storm. Even now there is a lot of dust around the MSA. I did take a video and will post it tomorrow. I have to be honest I have seen videos of one but never been in one but wanted to. It was actually fun.

Josseppie, you're a piece of work!

The first time I experienced a good sized dust storm was in Colorado Springs, years ago. It was sort of interesting and it was back in the day before the drought. I've experienced others since then, and I'm not overly fond of them - especially when caught out in the middle of nowhere with no place to take shelter. Those fine particles of sand can HURT!

I often run into dust devils during my travels around the Four Corners - usually in the summer. The Navajo believe they REALLY are "devils" - nasty spirits that can bring bad luck. The way to deal with a dust devil is to stop and look straight at it, saying "I see you. I know who you are. You cannot hurt me."

I've gotten in the habit of talking to dust devils this way every time I encounter one. It's good practice for facing adversity in general. Looking straight at the drought, acknowledging it's real and naming it for what it is will help us deal with the changes and challenges this time of little rain and high temperatures is bringing to Colorado. Smart folks, those Navajo.
