Climate change predicted this—higher average temps and more extreme temps and storms.

We are also low in snow. In the early part of the last decade (the "oughts") we had severe drought with as little as 30" one winter and 36" 2 others. Last winter we had 80". So far this winter we are a bit over 31".

We had more snow today - and really frigid temps. We're supposed to stay like this tomorrow - then 40s, 50s, & 60s for the next week. That rapid a change in the Midwest just smacks of tornado weather - so everyone - "HEADS UP"!!!!!

Crazy crazy weather!!

The screendump from the weather channel in my post above forecast a low of -5 for us for this morning. Wrong again. We just can't seem to get out of the bargain basement.

I think of New Mexico as a mild climate. I'm gonna have to reset my fantasy compass.

I sure like the New Mexico food. I stopped at a diner there on my way home from Arizona and they had a woman frying fresh flat bread on a griddle. I swear, I woulda married her . . . that bread waz that good!

Good Bread

Splitrock

1: I also thought it was down south?????????????
2: That bread may have "stuff" in it??? Did the rest of your day seem great also?
3: All big decisions should be slept on before commitment!

The trick is that New Mexico spans a good number of climate zones: From low, desertlike climate in some parts in the south to alpine climate in some parts of the north. Maria happen to live in one of the high, alpine zones of the state. And, at the moment, wishing we were down in one of the low, desertlike zones.

I think they were flour tortillas. They were thicker than I had before and not burned or tough either. It may be like my first date . . . I remember it better than it really was.

I liked Albuquerque a lot too. The people were nice, the food was good, and it was really easy to get around town. I'm such a good traveler. It a shame I have to sit up here stuck in a block of solid ice.

That must have been a long time ago. Albuquerque is now typified by sprawl and stretches a gazillion miles in every direction (overstatement alert).
