Blaha: Normal rainfall in April 2.72 inches
Farmers are noticing an impact on grass, which means, like the Dieterts, they have to supplement feed.
The corn and sorghum Dietert has in could really use a good rain as well.
“There hasn’t been any rain that measures to more than a tenth of an inch or so in six weeks,’’ Dietert said. “A two-inch rain would lie just perfect.”
National Weather Service Meteorologist Robert Blaha, a specialist in charge of monitoring this region’s climatology, said tile normal rainfall for New Braunfels bi April is 2.72 inches.
“This was a dry April, but it’s

not that unusual,” Blaha said. “In 2003, it was dry like this, too, with .13 inches of rainfall bi April. That was a very dry period. It extended bito May and ended in June with a very wet summer. It was also dry in 1999."
With what little rainfall New Braunfels had, Blaha said it did well compared to areas to the south and west. San Antonio, for example, had only .01 inches of precipitation in April. In Del Rio, the rainfall was only .09 inches for April.
“It was still a dry, dry April,” Blaha said. “If it extends through this month with no relief, it could put us in an abnormally dry area."
April 2005 went into the books most notably for a series of cold fronts that brought wild temperature swings, Blaha said.
“We had more strong cold fronts than usual and the

extremes from temperature, cold to warm, was more like March than April," Blaha said. “This year, we got our first 90-degree days a lot earlier than last year, with our first one being way back in March, Sunday, March 18. Its warmed up faster, but we’ve had some cool outbreaks, too."
Blaha said preliminary forecasting information shows three different windows coming up in which the region could see rain.
The first is today—particularly tonight—and tomorrow.
“Tile best chance everything’s been showing since last week is Tuesday night or Wednesday,” Blaha said. “Wednesday, the opportunity starts to decrease and Thursday it goes away."
Over this coming weekend, Blaha said, there could also be rain—although models show it
more likely to tile north of New Braunfels in the I till Country. Another window opens the weekend afterward, May 13-17.
“If these next opportunities don’t pan out, we could be faced with a dry spring," Blaha said. “But we still have late May and early June to go with. All it takes is for something to slow down."
Even in 1970, Blaha said, a year remembered for its drought conditions, May saw quite a bit of rainfall.
"That’s when most of our rain came," Blaha said. “There wasn’t much for the rest of the year."

classroom experiments, the Christmas assembly and an awards ceremony.
Teacher Vicki I lead said she just gave the girls a camera and turned them loose.
“I’m so proud of them,” she said. “They did such a good job."
Before the house lights came back up, the audience was treated to a blooper reel.

Cork’s amendment passed5to2
ordinance to make it mandatory that builders be required to connect to a regional detention facility if a subdivision or new development was within 3,000 feet of a regional detention facility-
“Because the ordinance is a voluntary system, I think it should have some parameters that require developers connect if they’re within 3,000 feet,” he said.
However, District 4 Coun-
Students also use spreadsheets for organizing research data and music creation software to write their own songs.
New Braunfels Middle School Technology Specialist Carol Cochran said she was thrilled parents got a chance to see what their children did every day instead of just hearing about it when they got home.
“I wish everyone could see what all these students can do,” she said. “Its amazing.”
New Braunfels Middle School science teacher Robin Wright required her students to create a report about eartli-quakes and their economic impact using PowerPoint.
Although she could tell them almost anything they wanted to know about seismic events, computer questions were another matter.
“'Hiese kids are teaching me about technology,” she said, laughing.
cilwoman Valerie Hull and District 3 Councilwoman Gale Pospisil argued that the 3,000 feet requirement would make it too difficult for developers to connect to a regional detention facility by having to build a conveyance through a half mile of existing development.
Cork’s amendment passed on a 5 to 2 vote.
Hull and Pospisil voted against Cork’s amendment, and also voted against approving the amended ordinance.
Council will hold special meetings at 6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday for the second and third readings of the ordinance.

The character of America is in its small towns. That's why public service is an important part of my life. Communities flourish when citizens participate.
New Braunfels needs a mayor that brings people together, a mayor with proven leadership ability, a mayor committed to economic development, infrastructure improvement, and fiscal responsibility.
My background and personal experience make me uniquely suited to serve our city. As a former prosecu tor with a master's degree in Public Administration, I understand the challenges local governments face.
leaders have to make tough choices, but they also have to make the right ones. That means asking for input and working with diverse groups to achieve results that benefit everyone. As a local businessman, I know that communities must balance needs with resources. Fairness and fiscal responsibility will be my guiding principles.
I care deeply about this community and the wellbeing of its citizens. rd appreciate your vote on May 7th.
The safety of our community and families is important to Bruce. He served as an assistant county and district attorney and for more than twenty years as the city's prosecutor.
Quality of life
