Roswell, NM 05-07-2012 Hail Storm



All the "green" is not grass. We have no grass. It's leaves from the trees.

Re: post your wacky weather pics

"It hardly ever snows in Socorro (NM). And when it does, we only get a little bit."

Yeah, right.

12-05-2011







By the time the snow stopped, it was past the bottom of the front bumper on the bus and my Jeep 4X4 was pushing snow. This storm closed down I-25 as well. Luckily we did not lose either power (parts of ABQ was out for over a week) nor did the water mains break which was AMAZING since Socorro's water mains are close enough to the surface that they break somewhere about once a month in the winter.

11-27-2011




Thanks to these two storms, we didn't manage to leave Socorro until 12-10-2011. Snow was still on the ground and the bus still had snow on the roof when we rolled into Roswell the next day. It was extremely cold. We certainly were not set up to be spending the night on the side of the road at that point since the bus was little more than a glorified metal tent.


We will not be caught like that again. The bus will be set up to handle weather like that in case we ever get caught in it again. Luckily we had a good sleeping bag and several quilts and blankets on the bed. We turned on the LP range to heat up food, water and us just a little.

Re: post your wacky weather pics

We were hitting freezing temps with chance of snow last week. We're in CENTRAL NM! This week... it will hit the 90's! And I had a sweater on YESTERDAY!

This has been one of those crazy springs!
