So I went looking online for 2018 Southwestern monsoon forecasts and found one from The Weather Network. Pretty informative — but also geographically "challenged."
I scrolled down through the charts and graphs and found this video: "Must See: Time Lapse of the Monsoon Season in Mexico." Late summer rains do start first in Mexico and then move northward. And ponderosa pine trees do grow in the Mexican Sierra Madre.
But wait — that logo says "Angel Fire Resort," which is in northern New Mexico, admitted to the Union in 1912.
And who will appreciate that error more (I hope) than the editors of New Mexico Magazine, which for decades has run an item in every issue titled "One of Our 50 Is Missing" (archived here).
Even today, traveling in the USA and elsewhere, New Mexico residents are complimented on how well they speak English, while postal clerks in other US states tell people that they must fill out a customs form to send a package to Las Cruces. And so on.
Should we cut TWN some slack because they are headquartered in Ontario?
