This is our Doberman Kal. Kal loves attention, tennis balls, and cats. He loves to give them kisses. Kal would love to be Pet of the Week to get the word out that big dogs can be friends with little cats.

Will El Niño Bring Rain Or Nada?

Stormy Skies Over Sonora

Weather experts lining up the probabilities of a strong El Niño this winter bringing the Mother Lode much in the way of rain can’t really say how we’ll wind up, wet weather-wise, it turns out.

Specific-to-Sonora weather history that dates back to 1950 shows five strong El Niño events since then. Of them, three gave us 60 percent above normal precipitation. Over El Niño winters that occurred during 1958, 1973, 1983, 1992, and 1998, rainfall totals were all over the board. Kind of like the way I throw darts, unfortunately. For example, in 1992, we got 36 inches, which is about three-quarters of normal, precipitation-wise. In 1983, however, Sonora was soaked with over 88 inches of rain — which is 177 percent of average. The winter of 1973’s total of about 52 inches was just above average for the city.

So what have we learned here? Don’t challenge me to a dart match unless you plan to take cover, and keep up those drought-inspired rain dances but perhaps not too relentlessly! Weather nerds hankering for more a bit more data may click here.

KKBN Hard Working Man(7.22.15)

Ted Carrillo
Ted is a very hard working man. He is honest loving and very considerate of other people. He loves his coworkers like his family and that’s important for what he does. He recently lost a close friend and coworker in a tragic work related accident and still he goes to work everyday to make sure the job gets done. He is amazingly strong and even through this difficult time seems to do it with great perfection. Even with a hard day at work he comes home to his new family and does everything he can for us as well. We are lucky to have him in our lives and want to show him how much he love him and support him. We think he deserves to win this award. We hope we get a chance to show everyone what a strong and wonderful person he is.
