I've been the first person to complain about the crazy weather we've been having (TEN inches of snow on MAY 1ST?  SERIOUSLY??), but this piece of news just helped me put everything into perspective.

The Coloradoan reports that the last several weeks of precipitation has brought drought levels in our neck of the woods down from "moderate" to just "abnormally dry."

Wednesday’s Colorado Climate Center drought report shows that above-average precipitation in April and an additional 1 to 2 inches of moisture during the first week of May in Northern Colorado has turned the region soggy enough to pause drought for now.

“We had five weeks in a row where we had one abnormally strong cold front a week,” said meteorologist Don Day of DayWeather in Cheyenne.

This pause in the drought might only be temporary, but I'll take it!  Finally, some relief from all this water shortage nonsense!  It's a good time to live in Northern Colorado!
