Heavy wet snow is what they were saying this stuff was going to be
Thought it might be doin' something there already.

I'm not so sure rain is even in the forecast here. I can't remember the last time we saw rain here. It's been a very long time. Song lives up in the mountains, maybe she has gotten something, we've gotten zero in LC. I don't think it's rained here since the Bush administration.

I accidentally found a cool interactive snow depth map:

NOHRSC Interactive Snow Information

You can zoom into an area by clicking the the [zoom control]
or just zooming in via a two-point-box (wait a second or so).

Geek toys. Are you a geek?

Well here in the Capitans it is getting a little darker and the wind is blowing. Temperature has dropped this pm. Looks a little like snow to the southwest.

The Front Range in Colorado is getting hammered and is heading your way. DIA got shut down. Blizzard conditions north of Denver. Vail Pass was shut down twice yesterday. It's sure to be heading your way pretty quick. The Denver-Colorado Springs snow totals is 12-14 inches, and is still coming down. With 30 m.p.h. winds as well.

I was down in SE New Mexico visiting friends in Hagerman, then in Edgewood this past weekend. Awful dry in those areas. And the wind Sunday night and early Monday morning? Yikes! You guys need moisture there, and it's coming.

You take care down there HT! I lived In Raton for a time in the early 80's. The motels will darn sure fill up if they haven't already. Springer has only a couple and Wagon Mound has zero. The good thing is Raton has a few dozen. I stayed at the Colt for a time; handy with the Pioneer close by. I know a few motels have closed up like the Capri on the north side of the bypass. I recall talkin w/ ya when you first moved there. You getting used to it now?

Default "listen to the wind blow... down comes the night"....

Thanks HH - yup I do remember your kind welcome. I am getting used to it, I guess I'm still looking for the golden ring though. I think Raton has lots of potential, but that's on another thread. The wind chill right now is -4! I bet most of the motels in town are busy, I'm just happy to be in my home, not on the road and definately not going across the pass !

I'll take some pics in the AM, wonder what it will be like after another 8 hours of this stuff....

Not a bit of snow here southeast of Santa Fe. Nothing but some light rain. And the weather map shows everything to the east of us.

So it is looking like our chances for several inches (which they have been predicting all week) might not happen. I will be very disappointed if that is the case.
