You make me laugh,, When we went to the Netherlands, I had met a girl online that lived there and was from Alamogordo and I had to take her Hatch chiles(in the cans) and dried chiles. She missed them so much.

If you HAVE to use canned chiles, Hatch is indeed the way to go.

I will probably be going to the Hatch Chile Festival if I am in Alamo...and get a big ole sack roasted!!!

MMMMMMMMMM....

Thanks for the tips, LRUA....much appreciated!! As far as Farmington being a lot colder in the winter, that is what I LIKE...and one of the reasons I'm torn about Alamo is the fact that the temps and climate ARE similar to what they are here, which means HOT summers. Farmington can get hot, too, but it gets hotter later and ends sooner, much shorter summers.

But.....I'll keep an open mind about the whole area. This little voice keeps telling me to check it out further, and I tend to listen, LOL!!! The housing is SO much more affordable, from what I've seen.

I will be at Comfort Inn on White Sands, where I stayed last time. It has internet access and not-too-bad prices, though I hate paying for motel rooms!!!!

It seems strange to me that Alamogordo could be so much cheaper for home prices than Farmington.

What is the reason that Farmington has such high prices? Usually in the rest of NM, the prices are lower in more rural/isolated areas, which I would consider Farmington to be.

I STILL picture you moving to a cool climate, Cathy. I am hoping you can find homes in both places that are affordable so that you can really have a choice between the two different areas.

Good luck on your trip!

Cathy,
Cloudcroft is 20 degrees cooler than Alamo, And High Rolls 10. So if you want cooler, think along those lines.
Good luck on the hunt..
Jane
