Yet one more reason not to live in Alamosa - too cold by far!

Even Pueblo has snow and this is one of the odd storm where the eastern suburbs are worse. The high might be 21 if we are lucky today and go below 0 tonight! This is why I love it here.

According to NOAA the Craig-Moffat (AMOS) recorded a low temperature of -36F. That ob report must be from a different location.

I think again of my vague idea to live in Ridgway from about May through August and then be back in eastern Mass. the rest of the time. Winter here is a joke, even if not comparing to the previous posts. One plowable storm this year, several inches, and four cold days. Everything melted this week with highs in the 50s-60.
Then again, the humidity in the spring/summer. Ech. So the daydream goes on.

Arctic outbreak is likely for Mass and New England by the end of the month with snow. The models have been rather consistent with the cold air at the very least. Winters are very changeable everywhere these days..

I hope it back doors Colorado. I would love to see a very cold arctic front hit us keeping the highs below 0 with moderate snow.
