I live in New Mexico's high desert a few miles NW of Albuquerque at 5,500 ft. We have had a "robust" monsoon season and our severe to exceptional drought has retreated eastward, mostly along the Texas border. We are still experiencing "moderate" drought or abnormally dry conditions. This is a desert climate so abnormally dry is still a concern. Albuquerque got 6.1 inches of rain this season (ending September 30), approaching twice what we got last year. Rain has continued into October. Albuquerque's annual average rain/snow amounts to 8.8 inches.

The plants in my garden benefited from the rain. Most are native plants, wildflowers, and low water/desert plants. It was a great year for high desert wildflowers. I have not heard a lawnmower for 9 years. Growing a grass lawn is a fool's errand here. Temperatures have been in the mid-50s at night but will drop into the 30s next week for a few days. Highs have been in the 70s but will drop into the upper-40s on Monday with more rain and then climb back up into the 50s. We have the first snow on the mountain. Chamisa (Rabbitbush) has not bloomed here yet. Cottonwoods are just beginning to turn gold along the Rio Grande.

At long last after months of excessive heat and devastating drought, this morning we are finally getting some light but steady sprinkles here on the west coastal regions. Keeping fingers crossed and hoping it will put out the wildfires and that it will last just like this right through winter.

After a week or so of above average temperatures my grass started to green up again after the frost. But I have over a week of sub freezing temperatures starting tomorrow night.

We are feeling the effects of tropical storm Nicole, so have finally gotten some much needed rain. The temperature hovers in the low 70s and it’s clean up time in the garden. Probably one more mow before the centipede goes dormant.

In 4 months, it will be spring again here.

Near 70° for almost mid November is not too bad; much above average temperatures continue with a nice steady rain.

-5 last night. 12"snow. Single digit lows now and for another week or two in the forecast. Several feet in the mountains already.

Great end to fall in Montana.

It was a gorgeous Autumn day here as far as I am concerned---I love November. It poured down all day. It was dark, gloomy, windy, and chilly, and then the temp dropped by a significant amount by late afternoon. I had to turn on the heat by sundown tonight. It is cold enough out there now for a warm jacket, a hat and a scarf. Overnight low will be around 34. It seems we have finally turned the corner from Summer thank heavens. Earlier this week I still perspired like mad whilst working outside in t-shirt, shorts, and sandals. It finally feels like Autumn, and for that, I am very happy indeed.
