SF New Mexican: Forestry officials brace for fire season.

If weather predictions hold true, and the drying trend caused by La Niña continues, New Mexico could be in for another big fire season.

It’s drier than at this time last year. I suspect they’ll close the forests in late May, so get out and hike while it’s still cold/cool … otherwise you’ll be left high and dry. Apparently I’m wrong. TV news tonight says the snowpack in the Sangres is a percentage higher than last year - so we’re actually better off, if marginally. My bad!
