Some stuff I wrote elsewhere on how dry it is (sub. req.):

If we don’t get any rain in the next week— a good bet— the past four months will go into the record books as the driest winter in Albuquerque history.

With 0.14 inches since Nov. 1, Albuquerque is on the verge of shattering the old November-February record of 0.30 inches in the winter of 1903-04, according to Deirdre Kann of the National Weather Service.

A huge hat tip to Deirdre and Chuck Jones at the Weather Service for digging through the old data for me.


  1. WC – It’s all relative. The amount of rainfall that counts as a drought in your neighborhood would leave is drenched and happy, no doubt.
