How Dry We Are

In my previous post my reference to “bone dry” New Mexico was so offhand as to make me pause and think again. New Mexico and the whole Southwest have been so dry for so long as to be a new normal. Every year is the worst fire season, every month the hottest since (fill in the date), every decade the driest.

But just how dry is it? gives what appears to be an accurate picture. The map above appears to support the claim that we’re well into the worst drought in more than a millenium.
