ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — I feel a little like a cheap carnival barker foretelling you this, but FYI, it looks like El Niño is coming.
New Mexico water managers, grappling with their fourth straight year of drought, have a tired look in their eyes. Mention El Niño and you’ll see a spark of life. That is because the Pacific climate pattern with the lyrical name is associated with wetter weather.
Step right up folks, come see the Amazing El Niño, bringer of moisture to the parched state of New Mexico! You’ll thrill to its crashing thunderstorms, its snowpacked mountains and brimming rivers!
