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.
