The wettest February in LTER history (37.1 mm) on top of the wettest January in LTER history (34.3 mm) obviously puts the Sev way ahead of any start to a calendar year in Sev's recorded history. The next wettest combined Jan and Feb on the Sev was 34.4 mm in 1993. Albuquerque broke the Jan-Feb record that had stood since Lincoln was president (1863).

Things have really been hopping down at the Sev this month.
Of note is the installation of a new wireless network which covers most of Mckenzie Flats. A new antenna has sprouted on the lab/conference building. This is the base station radio for the new wireless network on the Sevilleta. This radio is transmitting to a 2nd newly installed radio atop the granite escarpment south of Bootleg Canyon. This radio in turn is in contact with 2 Access Point radios in the same area. The beams from these 2 radios cover the Mckenzie Flats region.

It was planned for this to go out earlier but I had to make a dash to the field to collect precipitation samples before the bottles overflowed. This is a problem that has never popped up before. Keep in mind that some of this was written before the recent moisture events.

Actually this May was almost a carbon-copy of May, 2003 Most daytime temperatures ran above normal for May but no daily records were broken during the entire month.

If you think you missed the April Met Central - you are right.... I still haven't sent it out. Loss of computer link between UNM and the field station has left me unable to run monthly summaries. I hope both the link and the report will be available soon.
