A chance to find a new job for the summer is happening at the March Regional Career Fair. Aztec Museum will have special spring break hours this month, and the February storms have helped San Juan County to drop drought designations moving into March. You're watching the Local News Network, brought to you by Boon's Family Thai BBQ, and Pop's Truck and RV Center. I'm Hayley Opsal. The Farmington Regional Career Fair will be March 9th from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Farmington Civic Center. The career fair is an opportunity for job seekers and employers alike to fill positions for the spring and summer. Job seekers are encouraged to bring resumes and there will be opportunities to apply and interview for open positions and learn about future opportunities. Aztec Museum will hold special spring break hours, March 14th through the 25th. Come explore the museum exhibits, including a safe from the alleged first bank robbery by the outlaw who would become known as Butch Cassidy, a traditional one room schoolhouse and more. The museum will be open 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for youth, and children five and under are free. Aztec Museum is currently looking for volunteers for its summer season. Call 505-334-9829 if interested. The spate of storms between February 13th and February 23rd dropped 0.72 inches of precipitation at the Four Corners Regional Airport. Although it may not seem like much, the moisture has left western San Juan County free of any drought designation for the first time since June 2019, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. The 0.72 inches brings the yearly total to 1.93 inches as of February 24th, significantly higher than the normal total of 1.18 inches. Even better news, the SNOTEL map for the San Miguel, Dolores, Animas and San Juan Rivers show the snow water levels are at 140% of normal as of February 23rd, making it the leading figure in Colorado. With current conditions and the Pacific pointing to a collapse of La Nina conditions, a damper spring may just be in the books setting northwest New Mexico and southwest Colorado up for a wetter summer.
