Watching for Rain


Here we are at the end of June and it has been hot, dry and windy. Let's pray for our monsoons to arrive on time and give us some relief!

I found a new place and will be moving in late July or so. Right after posting in the June Gazette of my need, I found a wonderful new landlord. The house is a great old adobe in Silver City that needs some TLC but my new landlord is working with me to bring it up to date a bit. (It's a good thing I have some time in July to pack and move so I can be ready for the September issue.)

The closing date for the September Gazette will be August 19. Labor Day weekend is very early this year, on September 1st, meaning the weekend begins August 29, so I'll be sure and get Gazettes delivered early. Remember to submit your September and October events for this Sept. issue. NOTE: The correct date for the Pie Town Pie Festival is Sept 13; the date listed in the PRINT edition of the July/August Gazette is incorrect!

Summertime is in full swing, and Independence Weekend is upon us. This Gazette features 4th of July celebrations by community, and the regular July and August calendars begin on page 27 of this issue. (Yes, we have a few color pages again this issue: thanks to our advertisers for making this possible - readers love it.)

Just when you think you've lived in New Mexico and know everything about the weather . . . earthquake! On Saturday night, June 28, about 11:00 PM New Mexico time, an earthquake measuring 5.2 on the Richter scale took place northwest of Lordsburg. That night I had gone to sleep early, and it being a hot night, had the AC on. I was not quite in deep sleep and the pictures on the wall (and the wall) began vibrating. At first thought I had dreamed it, but next morning on Facebook, many local comments were posted. Wow, earth tremors in New Mexico.

Ongoing appreciation to our advertisers who support the paper and keep the Glenwood Gazette coming to 8,000 readers each month! Be sure to tell your friends who don't live in Gazette delivery regions that they can view the calendar AND pages every month on our website, at … glenwoodgazette. com.

Have a great 4th of July and enjoy many summer road trips!

Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests seasonal conditions update

Springerville, AZ—July 1, 2014

The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests present very different landscapes and varied weather conditions which may affect the outlook for fire season and monsoonal moisture. Extended periods of drought conditions for the past season have contributed to drier fuels conditions for May and June. Above normal fire potential will reduce to near normal conditions during the month of July due to the approaching monsoon season.

Monsoons can be dangerous if you are not aware of the dangers they can bring. Monsoons bring powerful winds, pounding rain, dangerous lightning, and blinding dust storms. The Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests (ASNFs) will continue to have small fires due to lightning strikes from the storms. The moisture produced by the monsoons should return the area to below normal fire conditions for August through September. The US Forest Services wants visitors to the ASNFs to enjoy their time on the Forests, and encourages visitors planning a trip to the area to “Know Before You Go”! Check with the National Weather Service for a weather outlook before camping, hiking, or driving through the area, and always let someone know where you are going and the specific locations you plan to visit.

“Campers should avoid low-lying areas. It is important to anticipate when rain is predicted and to be aware of the alternate routes in and out of the area, especially within or near any previously burned area,” according to ASNFs’ Supervisor Jim Zornes. Never drive across a flooded road! Statistics clearly indicate the high risk of driving in and around flooded roads and low spots. In many cases, individuals attempt to drive through flooded roads only to be whisked away by rushing waters. The rule is simple: if the road or its line markings cannot be seen, avoid driving through the water.

As a reminder, all Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests are in stage II Fire Restrictions and fireworks are never allowed on National Forests. For more information about restrictions on public lands call 311 or (928) 333-3412; 1-877-864-6985 or visit ( ) and the interagency website: ( ) created to inform residents and visitors about fire restrictions and closures across the South-west area.

Residents and visitors are asked to be aware of wildfire conditions in our area and take appropriate prevention measures. Remember, one less spark means one less wildfire.
