Monthly rainfall for the rim 2019
2019 looks to be starting out great. There is 2 inches of snow on the ground, and more falling. I will give monthly total unless there is ginormous storm that dumps lots of rain or snow. Don't expect any totals for Feb, March. April as I will be in Australia and New Zealand and the majority of the Pacific South Sea Islands.
Can you put a live cam on your rain gage? Just kidding. Have fun with your travels. Sounds like a great time.
Had 6" of snow last night. So it off to crank up the snow blower and clear the driveway. Just as I was finishing the driveway, the county came thru with a grader and cleared the snow off the street, so I can get to town if I need to.
Have 16' at my place in the White Mountains.
13 inches total snow since Christmas with the storm today. Jan, is getting off to a great start. Looking for a break, tired of shoveling.

My desert landscaping is full of weeds.
Webcam for Christopher Creek. Right across the road from the Creekside Rest.
Had another 2" of snow last night.
3.7 inches of moisture for Jan, real good. All the intermittent streams have water in them. Stock tanks are close to full if not full.
Leaving for 3 months, when I get back in May will give the total for Feb, Mar, and April.
Just took the wife to Young for lunch. Took the Chamberlain Trail FS300 and on the way back we went up on top of the rim. Still lots of snow on top of the rim and all the shallow lakes up there are full.
Last week had 2” of rain......then 8” of snow so far today......supposed to get up to 12” Thursday & Friday. Going to be green this spring and summer!
Which usually means the higher risk of it being black isn't far behind (forest fires when all that new grass and brush drys-out)! But, it should make for some great antler growth this year. Thanks for the update.
They’re really thinning out the forest up here, Marvin. USFS told me they have a contract with a timber company to thin it out, as they never want to have a repeat of the Wallow Fire.
Two feet and more coming in Forest Lakes today! And Roy is correct, I’ve never seen so much logging going on as in the last year. They’ve definitely been busy.
Be careful up there.....sideways snow coming down hard at my place. Hope I can get out by Saturday......got a feeling I’ll be shoveling a lot in front of the garage tomorrow afternoon!
Thanks Roy! I’m safe and sound in Texas right now. Just keeping a close eye on what’s going on from afar.
I received almost an inch of hail in North Phoenix this afternoon!
Close to 3 feet in Flagstaff, with more to come.
The news said that today had the highest amount of snowfall of any day in Flagstaff's history.
Yep! Looks like about 36” in Forest Lakes too!
News just reported Pinetop is 24" so far.....supposed to snow most of the day.
This is awesome. My buddies in Rio Verde and Cave Creek have 6 inches of snow. Taking my boys sledding up in Flag tomorrow afternoon. As long as we can get up there, it should be awesome.
Be safe out there!
I live in North Phoenix near Ben Avery, and there is snow on the small mountains in front of my house this morning. This is the first time in the 16 years I've lived here that I've seen snow from my bedroom window!
BGhasbhat take chains,My sister just returned from Flag...More snow on the way.
Roy, that can't be you? Aren't you in Omaha?
No. Leaving Sunday. Panel is from the 27-2nd
Pretty crazy to see actual snow this low. I'm on the Cave Creek line.
37” so far in Lakeside.....supposed to get a bit more from 7-11. We may end up at 40” from this storm!
‘dem darn elks this year gonna be biggin! :)
Hopefully I have a late unit 27 tag calling my name next week
......another foot yesterday. With the weather turning warm this week, another huge melt off will occcur. All the white mountain lakes are over flowing!
Roy, a couple of my favorite White Mountain lakes are looking at winter kill (grimace), but that's a LOT of antler juice for all you lucky so-and-sos with elk tags this year!
