Report 12-11 through 12-17-17. Our last rain was 11-27 with 0.17 inch. I've been monitoring soil moisture with my soil moisture meter every week or so, and on 12-15 the moisture dropped significantly. With predicted winds for the weekend, I watered on 12-15 for the first time since 10-30-17. Winds have been strong, gusty, and persistent since yesterday. We had frosty mornings every day, except the last two. Chickadees and finches are out, plus a more dark eyed Juncos than I've ever seen. The Mexican Salvia are still beautiful and bulbine is blooming.

I have not been outside digging in the dirt, but because we've had less than a quarter of an inch of precip in the past 4 weeks, 0.2" of it this week, I'm calling it mildly dry. I still have a few plants that, it seems to me, ought to be brown by now, but are still green or at least greenish. My little sparrow population remains stable.

Normally full local ponds (small ones) and streams are less than full capacity. 1.62" rain and melted snow since Dec. 1. Twice this past week I observed vees of wild geese honking their way south. One vee had 24 birds, right overhead. Two others were below treetops and couldn't be counted, but sounded fewer. No open water near here to land in for rest. Four inches of snow on ground. Snow on solar panels prevents PV generation. Snowy weather reduced visitors to our gift shop. Lots - as many as 30 at one time - enjoying the sunflower seeds I scattered in my back yard. Some use the heated bird bath for a drink.

This past week has been typical winter weather for South West Michigan, I do not think the temperature ever got above freezing and dropped as low as 9 degrees F. We have had approximately a foot of new snow fall, as cold fronts and lake effect snows have affected our weather pattern this past week.

For the week ending 12/17/2017, conditions were MILDLY DRY. The 7-day moving precipitation total of 0.29 inches was 62% below the 8-year (2009-2016) average of 0.76 inches for this date and in the “mildly dry” range; the 30-day total of 3.03 inches was 2% below the 8-year average of 3.08 inches and in the “near normal” range; and the 90-day total of 15.73 inches was 77% above average and in the “mildly wet” range. Snow was responsible for 100% of total precipitation this week. There was a total of 4.4 inches of new snow this week, with a maximum snow depth of 5.0 inches (on the 12th). Temperatures continued to plummet this week as winter weather continued, ranging from 41 (on the 16th) to 7 (on the 14th) degrees F, with average Hi/Lo temperatures of 33/20 F. Overall, the average high temperature was 8 degrees cooler than last week, and the average low temperature was 7 degrees cooler than last week. Snow or ice cover all but the extreme lower end of Crescent Lake. Small numbers of Mallards and Canada Geese continue to occupy the tiny patch of open water at the inlet to Crescent Lake, while Coyote tracks are numerous on the snow-covered surface of the lake. The first Song Sparrow and American Tree Sparrow (one each) of the winter season were noted on the 16th.

Snow covers about 75% of the ground with about 2"(-) average. There is a lot of dry grass but with the snow, do not believe it is a fire problem at this location. Do not know the value of condition monitoring during the winter with snow on the ground and the ground frozen. Snow depth is shown in daily reports.

It was just over a week ago that we received nearly 2 inches of rain. Since then we have been dry. The Condition Scale Bar of near normal - but, we would enjoy some additional precipitation soon - at it is forecasted. We have watered our winter vegetable garden once during the past week, when it has been sunny and windy. The old adage that "cold air" is "dry air" is proving true this week. AGRICULTURE: the only activity is that farmers are prepping their fields by clearing ditches and surrounding shrubbery. ENERGY: use of heating units as temperatures have dipped to slightly below normal for the period. FIRE: Level is likely low, as the Forest Service is itself conducting 'prescribed burns' in the local Nat'l Forest. PLANTS: frequent frosts overnight during the past week has knocked back anything blooming; caused any remaining leaves to fall from deciduous trees; blooming: eleagnus, mahonnia, and henbit. No dandelions or society garlic apparent in any quantity in the immediate local area. WILDLIFE: scarcity of rabbits being noted; but not that much evidence of fox activity - so perhaps the presence of loose hunting dogs is the cause. SOCIETY & PUBLIC HEALTH: more incidents of the flu being reported locally; and other antibiotic resistant upper respiratory ailments TOURISM & RECREATION: all local outdoor civic activities have enjoyed seasonal weather and good attendance WATER SUPPLY & QUALITY: Normal

Back up to Moderately dry. No measurable rain for the week. Winter plant growth is o.k. but soil moisture --both on the surface and especially deeper--just keeps getting dryer. We need 3-4 inches of good soaking rain to recoup.

Ground is dry. Eno a River trails are dry but the level of the river is a little higher than it had been. My guess is there is less evaporation that when it is warmer.

My last report was submitted on 10 Dec 2017. This report covers the week of 10-16 Dec 2017. Temperatures ranged from the middle single digits (7F) at night to upper 40’s during the day. During this period, 0.36 inches of precipitation in the form of snow (Snow Water Equivalent) fell adding to the 0.25 inches (rain) that fell the previous week. Most of the precipitation (5.6 inches of new snow) fell during the snow event of the 13th into the 14th. The total precipitation values for this period are; Precipitation 0.36, New Snow Equivalent 0.36, New Snowfall 7.8 inches. Total Snow (old and new) accumulation 7.8 inches. Total Snow Water Equivalent (old) 1.11 inches. With a slight drying and warming period, the snow on the ground is gradually disappearing at a rate of approximately 1-2 inches daily. With the main snow event on the 13th and 14th, most local schools cancelled classes and travel was hazardous. Overall, conditions remain “Near Normal”.

The lack of moisture has not allowed winter grasses to grow. Having to supplement my cow herd with hay and protein earlier than normal. The lack of any quality rainfall in nearly 60 days has zapped any topsoil for immature grasses to grow.

While I have heard that December statistically our highest rainfall month yesterday's 0.04 inches broke a 10 day dry spell and brought my readings for the month to 0.60 inches. This IS the Willamette Valley and the next 14 days CAN bring us up to the average but . . . There is still adequate moisture for the crops, fish and wildlife, etc. Those hurting are our ski areas and our snow-pack for summer agricultural irrigation and urban water supplies. Wide-spread rain is in the forecast for Tuesday so things can change.

Another dry week for us but the temperatures have been cool so we're not suffering too much. Plant life is relatively dormant, except for our bumper crop of collards which continues to thrive in the garden. My husband hasn't watered them lately but he said it probably wouldn't hurt if he did. What there was of a pecan crop is over so now we're just biding our time until spring!
