October, no no no. I got sunburned last October while in New Mexico, & that's just too warm to call it the best month. Though it did snow Thanksgiving day in the southeast part of the state.
Your winter months are the best with a refreshing nip at night & comfortable temp during the day, yet with sun to keep it warm.

All I see is 350 days of sun, no humidity, great place to live. How about the dust storms, when are the mosquitoes the worst and flies, is this the biggest distractions to living there? Water shortages, is this why I don't see many swimming pools,and how come You have indoor swimming pools if the weather is so great there? just curious because I still want to check it out ,compared to living in Maine, the frozen Tundra, I need to be outdoors 365... Tim Perry ..Thanks for any response.

Dust storms will be starting any day now and it will be windy until May. Crossing my fingers that we get an easy spring though! Definitely the worst time of year.

Flies will be around shortly too but won't get bad for another month. Mosquitoes come with the rain in July unless you're by the river. Depending on where you live they can be a PITA.

There's a fair number of pools but the working class roots of Cruces mean most of the older homes don't have one. I don't know why there's so many indoor ones unless it's because it's so hot outside. There's no real water shortage but we live in the desert so I try to conserve.

I think we had ONE day of snow in southern nm this year so if you hate the snow and frozen tundra of up north then you'll like it down here. The sun seems to almost always shine and many outdoors activities in the region.

As for pools i didn't realise there alot of Indoor Pools as all i ever see are the outdoor kind. Caballo Reservior 60 miles north and Elephant Butte reservior is 75 miles north (an hour drive) for all the water recreation needs of southern nm.
