I think I must be the only person in the state who hates the recent weather. Are there any waterfowl hunters out there who are with me? I hear people say it's such beautiful weather and I say I wish it were raining or snowing and they look at me like I'm crazy. I just think of the waterfowl hunting and the fishing and think things are going to suck if we don't get a change. This year the GSL will likely hit a record low. At this rate the marshes will be low on water. The only thing that saved us last year was the heavy rains in September. What are the odds of that happening again? I started to look at weather data to see what has been going on in recent years. Things really seemed to change beginning in about 2002. I looked at the months in each year to see how many months in which precipitation was low. My figures are not 100 percent perfect. These are approximate but darn close. Since 2002 we have had three wet years. An incredible 111 out of 160 months have had lower than average precip. Throw out the three wet years and it is 96 out of 124 (even in the "wet" years 15 out of 36 months were below average). That's scary. Hopefully the pattern will change soon but we are otherwise screwed. The current water year is already below 50 percent of normal and the long range forecast shows no big changes. This weather sucks.
