Just got a rain/snow shower up around Ridgway/Ouray. Enough to tamp down the dust and foggy enough to obscure the mountain view. Enough to get muddy paw prints in the house again after dust!

Mesa County will not see much rain until the monsoon season kicks in, maybe even no rain. Conditions are worrisome. Today's high might reach 90 but by Saturday will cool down to 78-80. Windy the rest of the week.
