We are just South of the red section in Colorado, and we didn't receive a drop of moisture East of the foothills in April. That and lots of wind has really dried things out. But in general, that is a fairly dry section of Wy.

Mike, your comment reminded me of a time I backpacked onto the northern section of the San Rafael Reef and when I camped for the night, didn't worry about filling up my water bottles, as there were lots of full potholes all around me. When I got up the next morning, everything was bone dry from the all-night winds.

Some great late season storms have been moving through the Northwest and have really bolstered the snowpack. Probably doesn't fully make up for the poor winter we had, but it's nice to see that even here in the Gallatin drainage, we're at 100% of normal snowpack. Still not looking great for most places south of Idaho though.
