First time these weather weenies out here have ever seen serious snow, in town. Maybe they will be calmer now about two inch snowfalls but I doubt it."
Oh how true! LOL

People freak out here over 1-3 inches! I have 13+ inches at my house in far north Rio Rancho and not a plow in site. My subdivision always seems to be last on the list for some reason. But I understand 550 is plowed and open and 528 is too. I cleaned my Durango off but not sure even with 4 wheel drive if I can get out of the subdivision, we shall see tomorrow maybe.

This is the worst snowstorm New Mexico has seen I believe. I was also in DC in the late 90's when we got 3 feet of snow!!!! How do I manage to get the worst storms no matter where I live? :-)

I have plenty of wine and other provisions though so I'm doing fine.

Sounds like you are getting hit harder down South than we are in the North. I can't get out to measure, but I'd say not more than 8 inches judging from the window panes and patio door.

It may also be getting warmer as some of the snow seems to be melting--but not on my driveway

And I have to admit I've seen far worse in the East and drove in it too.

What is this snowblower machine you speak of .
Well, I'll tell ya, fellow westerner; next time you go out for fast-food, save your straws. I'll be down to teach you the next step.

LLD, we feel the same! My husband & I lived in Boston a couple of years back & the first winter we saw (coming from growing up in ABQ) we got 27 in in 2 days. We were so freaked out! So all of this snow in ABQ is nothin'! We love this! Our German Shepard is in heaven. But 3 feet is a bit much....

I hope this isn't setting a trend, we are thinking of moving to Albuquerque area to get away from all of the snow and cold miserable weather. We haven't seen a flake here in PA, today it was 68 and just as warm tomorrow. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around, NM getting warmer weather and we get the cold and snow?
