Last summer I didn't keep any real record of the weather. This year I'm trying to do better. I suppose it was always just a matter of writing down what I was seeing at any given moment. Checking the weather is a habit with me--weather.gov several times a day on weekdays. This week the news was good: the 90s they warned about have been nudged into next week. Though the 79 they predicted for today's high swelled a little. All in all, a fair trade, especially when you add that outside chance for overnight showers. Given all the casinos in New Mexico, it's the rain fall recipients who are the real winners. Don't you know, the odds are about the same. Lots of flashing lights and near misses, the occasional gush of nickels.
