Please dont come to T or c. This town has way too many RVs crammed in together as it is. maybe thats the expected norm for RV life I couldnt say. i have learned in my short time here that this town is crawling with crystal meth addicts. I wouldnt want to park my RV, if I had one, on a lot next to some drug addicts living in the back of their truck camper for $200 per month.

Default a little more rant

also, if youre coming to NM because you think you might like the southwestern culture, especially the food, and diversity, you really wont find that in T or C. the population here is primarily elderly, and that is reflected in rather bland versions of what the rest of the state calls New Mexican style dishes. Albuquerque is much much much better all around.
Employment in a town this small is limited to low end service jobs such as wal mart or hotels and gas stations. even then, since the town is so small, its usually who you know not what you know.
sorry to be so pessimistic but im telling the truth about truth or consequences new mexico.
bland food
drug problems
cramped rv parks that resemble mobile slums
lots of closed down store fronts
very little cultural diversity
limited low paying jobs

So did some schools. Nobody is getting out in such cold unless they absolutely have to do so.

Not true. almost none of this post is true.
jobs in T or C? Home
city is hiring, as is new mexico state veterans home, and sierra vista hospital.
what does this poster expect for a town of 7,000 people? it isn't duke city, thank you.
here are statistics about T or C, as you can see, T or C doesn't have as many "od fogeys" as the poster portrays.

Try down around Ruidoso, jobs and lots of RV spaces, nice mountains, race track, casinos shopping, if you end up there in the winter it's not NEARLY as cold as Minnesota, I know, because I am a NM transplant who moved to the northern tier!

The typical RV'er is definitely not a meth addict. Many RV's are most expensive than an average house.

I think you're confusing the old run down travel trailers and broken down Winnebagos with drug types and whatever in them with RV's travelers.

Whatever happened to global warming? I guess it's just something we have here, it's supposed to be 64 degrees here today but I think it's going to be higher than that.

But I DID have to laugh (not out loud) at a lady in the locker room at PTC putting on a pair of long johns, top and bottom, for this 50-65 weather!!

Another lady at the Visitor's Center/C of C even told me that she was cold--and she moved from MN. That surprised me. I was in shirtsleeves, and she had a sweater on!

Amazing the range of tolerances for any given weather, isn't it?
I don't blame her. To me 85 and above is great weather, although I can tolerate 65 if I'm dressed for it -- and it won't be short sleeved t-shirts except directly working outdoors in the sun.

I would love to not ever have to experience anything above 85 for the remainder of my life. 60 is shirtsleeve weather, and the older I get, the less I tolerate heat. Thank God for refrigerated air. I don't see how people live in this part of the country without it. Swamp coolers only cool the air about 20 degrees cooler than outside, and 100 outside and 80 inside is NOT comfortable.

It's 62 degrees here now, and gorgeous outside. I just wish the summers were like this instead of the winters. This country here is just beautiful, and I love seeing the mountains everywhere.

But at least it's not hot. I just hope this non-winter here doesn't mean a horrible, long hot summer.

I am pretty sure I'll end up in northern NM or CO eventually, but that's going to be awhile.

2006 just happened to be the year I tracked temperatures here from afar, LOL!! There was plenty of snow at Ruidoso/Ski Apache, and Cloudcroft Ski even opened that year.

I now know that isn't going to be the norm here, and I'll be lucky to get to go about once every 3-4 years.

In the meantime, I will enjoy everything the area has to offer....and stay indoors from June-August!!

The one good thing about summer is the produce....I love my fresh tomatoes and green chiles.
