La Cueva, Jemez Mountains Rain Guage

While it is not a common occurrence, rain during January at 8000′ in the Jemez Mountains,  is quite rare. Saturday and Saturday night brought steady rain showers to the La Cueva area. According to my rain guage we received .70 inches. Rain in January is not ideal, but we will take all of the moisture that we can get during these times of drought. We did receive about 3″ of new snow Monday night into Tuesday.
