Too many users and bad weather combined?

The persistent drought in Texas and NM in recent years coupled with warm winters and scanty snowfall in Colorado has left the Rio pretty dry recently. But then, it went dry around here (W Texas) almost every year when the irrigation season kicked in. It's a "river" flowing through mostly desert country, so that's to be expected.

Is the Rio Grande that hundred-yard wide muddy ditch that runs through town?

The lower Rio Grande suffered serious flooding twice in the past decade. Then, last year, the river reached near flood stage at Albuquerque. It's the way life is in the desert.
