Nice Snow Isn't Always An Oxymoron

It seems like the Southwestern United States has been in a state of drought, or almost out of a drought, or here we go again, it's a drought again, year after year. It's been an unending loop.

A couple of small snowstorms here in Northern New Mexico have made folks a little happier. As everyone I talk to says, "We need the moisture."

Along with the snow this time came some wicked cold, down to single digits at night and teens during the day. It's warming up, though, so that nice snow will melt slowly, trickling down to feed the soil and its plants. Well, that's the plan, anyway.

Ms. Pearl and her man went on a morning survey; I was lazy and stayed inside.

The report is simple:  The sky is blue, the sun is shining and all is well.


  1. And more on the way! I hear even Calif. is in for some much-needed moisture, thank goodness! I will be glad when the temps go up a little more... been too cold to do much outside without bundling up. Stay warm, and enjoy the snow!

  2. Beautiful snow photos. The top one is amazing.
