Washout in New Mexico, July and August 2006 09-02-06

We have received more rain in July and August than any other time in New Mexico history. We went 10 months without any measurable precipitation then received 12 inches in 2 months. To some of you this may not seem like much but to us it’s our annual rain fall. Also, we usually get the rain 2 inches at a time; in about an hour. Below you will see the results. I added some little drainage bridges last year and they helped.

The wild flowers are spectacular, we plant nothing on our railroad it's all natural reseeding.
