The long dry spell was broken
on Sunday by a, gentle rain which
has continued through Monday
and Tuesday, accompanied by chil
ly, cloudy weather. This was the
first precipitation for November,
with the exception of' a snow flur
ry on the night of November 3.
October was extremely dry with a
rainfall of .30, six" inches below
normal. The rainfall for September
was also below normal,' and conse
quently the water supply of High
lands and the vicinity has been
failing steadily for some weeks.
Vegetation has been suffering and
there has been much danger of
forest fires. It is safe to say that
the rain was welcomed by all.
Unusually delightful weather has
prevailed throughout the fall with
many bright, bracing days and no
unseasonable low temperatures.
Tht month of September was mild
with a number of days of summer
heat. A maximum temperature of
90 degrees was recorded on Sep
tember 9 at the U. S. weather sta
tion located three miles south of
Highlands, where . owing to the
lower altitude and southern expos
ure the temperature is approxi
mately four degrees higher than
that of Highlands. There were
some exceptionally warm days in
October, as well, with the tem
perature rising to 86 degrees on
the 7th and 9th, 85 degrees on the

weather were several periods of
cooler weather with frosty morn1
ings. The minimum temperature
recorded at the weather, station
during October was 28 degrees on
the 16th, while the lowest tempera
ture of November to date was 26
degrees on the f)th. As low as
20 degrees has been reported in
the higher altitude of Highlands
during the fall.
The rainy Weather will probably
be followed by a drop in tempera
ture along with clearing skies. We
may still expect solne "calm, mild
days" between now ami Christ
mas, but the beuuliful autumn
weather has drawn to a close, and
winter is just around the corner.
