KRQE.com: Assayi Fire erupts near Gallup.

Watson says the fire was caused by a man burning weeds and tumbleweeds at a camp nearby.” You’ve GOT to be kidding me. In these winds?

The so-called “honey” Moon ...

Looks like every other flippin’ Moonrise. Give me a break with the trumped-up Moon events, internet. What’s next, ‘Stevia Moon’? ‘Xylitol Moon’? I want an ice-cream slathered, Heath Bar Crunch Moon, or I’m not gonna bother next time.

ExtremeInstability: June 3, 2014, Norfolk to Blair Nebraska Insane Hail Storm Photos.

Hail is something to be feared, and our planetary warming seems to be making it larger (in my observations).

NWS ABQ:1941 Anomalous Precipitation.

A really fascinating analysis of a NM weather anomaly. But also look at the precipitation graph! 1942-1959 was a pretty dessicated period. Bookmarked.

Archaeology News Network: Rabbit holes lead to hill fort discovery.

I can’t help but think this is a ‘drone’ opportunity. A little jobby that duplicates everything a rabbit does, except with metal detectors and ground-penetrating radar.

365/2: 150. The happiness of Blue Flax.

365/2: 150.

Meditate on the happiness of blue flax in the early morning light. They only open for a few hours; soon as the sun’s getting warm, they close up.

SciAm: Ichthyosaur Graveyard Discovered Beneath Chilean Glacier.

The skeletons were extremely well preserved — some even retained soft tissues. The researchers also found fossil embryos inside a female specimen.” Great find.

Italian Ways: Plants of life and death at the Aboca Museum.

Lovely space.

[Note to photographers using HDR - your unskilled use of HDR is patently obvious with colorcast oversaturation of highlights and shadows (the blues here, esp.). There is a certain tonal contrast ‘mushiness’ and strange highlight colorcast that immediately tells everyone “I used Photomatix!”. Spend more time to learn your HDR program, or simply use shadow/highlight in LR.]

Possibly more later in the week, when the storm hitting Mexico breaks up.

Fog is a fragile thing; you’d have to live in the desert to realize how fragile (and rare) it is.

365/2: 142. Officially crazy weather again.

365/2: 142.

No surprise, really. Every last week of May, we get sudden T-storms with severe hail. In past years, we made the mistake of buying flowers to plant … get ‘em all in pots, and then have to run like crazy whilst getting pounded by icy golfballs to drag them under the portale.  Not this year. High winds right now, coming (unusually) from the East, spitting rain. Another view, perhaps better.

Guardian.UK: Write-down of two-thirds of US shale oil explodes fracking myth.

Given the incredible difference between initial projections of 15 billion barrels and revisions to 600 million, does this not call into account all such global projections for tight oil?” Abso-friggin’-lutely.
