"Interstate 25 has closed for 75 miles between mile markers 75 to 147, from Socorro to

Mike is right, I just looked at that site.

This is the nastiest storm I've seen in a long time. A LONG time!

Default Somehow I don't think we'll be attending Geezer classes at UNM tomorrow...

The icing problems are a lot worse than most people (myself included) had anticipated and
the wind is starting to howl around the house. Weather underground predicts overnight lows
of perhaps 5 below zero at Double Eagle Airport just west of me...

Three miles north of Capitan we have about a 15" of snow. Current temp is 1 below. Big storm. Stay inside all and be safe.

Anyone traveling in the state can access current road conditions/closures on this excellent web site. Zoom in on the map that first opens on the site to see the area you are interested in.

As I post this, several highways are closed, including IH-25 and 40.

PS My thermometer registers -10 as I post this at 8:30am, Feb 2.

The storm that closed these roads created lots of transport problems across the country (closed I-70 in Kansas) and wound up in here in New England. It closed expressways around here, overloaded roofs and created a real mess. I watched through my sliders because I twisted my knee trying to get to the commuter bus on Tuesday morning. This Weather reminds me of Snow Belt New York when I was a kid.

I hope everyone is well.

There are two very dangerous passages between T or C and Socorro, one is the Mitchell Point exit, the other is another 20 miles north, closer to Socorro, where the road grade is pretty steep as it traverses some pretty deep arroyos. There's no doubt in my mind that given the current conditions, those two points in the road are very nearly impassable.

About 20 inches of snow here in Dixon IL. Digging out. My option was to spend this time on vacation in southern NM to get out of the winter weather. Guess that wasn't a good plan. At least for this winter.

Thank goodness this type of storm which only hit once in 50 yrs. TorC will be back in the upper 50's in no time. We;ll be lucky to hit 50 by May!!

We;re still planning to move down, hopefully before our rent increase Sept 1st. I may have to get put on more waiting lists.
