Until April 2012, longtime resident Walt Wolff collected and posted daily weather data.  But the wintery weather and work associated with maintaining the beautiful Loma Lobo property caused Joyce and Walt to switch to part-time status.  Walt gave Robert L. Scott the weather equipment and Bob posted the weather updates until his equipment failed in January 2018.  Since then, the data is coming from Ernie Parker's weather station.

NOTE: This weather station is at the south end of the ranch and at a higher elevation.  As a result, you will find that, on average, the temperature readings will be slightly lower and the precipitation readings will be slightly higher than those reported by Bob/Walt's stations.
