Winter Wonderland

Even on the Southern High Plains of New Mexico, we get some snow.  Real winter seldom lasts for more than a couple weeks here but it can become extreme at times.  With occasional swings of 60 degrees Fahrenheit up or down in a matter of a couple hours, the inconsistency makes it difficult to plan.  Unseasonable warmth has now turned to single digit temperatures at night and 6-10 inches of snow around the property.

    It’s beautiful with some snow on it!

  2. New Mexico is a beautiful state! I had family in Albuquerque, so while I was growing up we visited there every summer and I fell in love with the state. Also, visited Santa Fe many times. 🙂
    Love the pic of the snow on your wagon! Did you build it?!
    BTW: I’m a hugger.
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

      Thanks, and yes, I built it. That and a few other projects were the impetus for this blog initially. If you are interested, there is a button on the right side of the page; if you click the picture, you can see the building process documented. That, and other little rolling homes is one of the themes of my blog.
