  • On the Almanac last week, P Kaech reported seeing snow on the top of Mt. Baldy near Crested Butte, and Andrea Lecos noticed that monsoon rains have brought up mosquitoes and other insects. Humans may hate the bugs, but birds are feasting on them. KVNF's Marty Durlin spoke with Jason Beason of the Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory about breeding season along the North Fork of the Gunnison River.
  • Rain further doused the dwindling Mountain Fire near Palm Springs on Monday, helping firefighters to gain 85 percent containment, officials said. And, in stark contrast to last week, firefighters' warnings didn't involve smoke and flames, but flash flooding and mudslides in burn areas.
  • A recent rash of rain has left many farmers underwater, literally. You'd think that the moisture would help things grow, but in this case it's just sinking their crops and their profits."This is the worst kind of weather we've had since I've been farming," said Shilo Farms' Larry Redmond. "Most folks say this is the worst they've ever seen"
  • For almost three weeks the UK has basked in glorious sunshine during the longest heatwave for seven years. But Met Office forecasters say thunder and lightening storms have ushered in an end to the blistering summer temperatures.
Have you seen change this week?
  • It is amazing the number of days that we have had rain this summer here in Jay, Fl. This area is a farming community about an hour north of Pensacola and almost in Alabama. Since mid-June I can probably count on one hand the number of days that it has not rained at least a little! I watched the gentlemen who work the pasture behind my house trying to bale hay in the rain and can sense their frustration.

    Question:
    How is this rain going to effect the cotton and peanut crops?

    Question:

  • I have been in Paonia for 8 years. In working at Solar Energy International for those 8 years one mile west of town on Mathews Lane, the water coming in from German Creek has never been called upon by a senior water rights holder, until today. Sorry no pick of the creek for this post, it is not running dry, it never is as it is mostly a run-off creek. Anyways, one of those things yet to personally experience since living here.

    Decision:
    Check in with the plants on the property, see how they are feeling at the root....
