Snow in Truth or Consequences?

Snow or Turtleback Mountain, Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.

Old-timers say that many years have passed before residents of Sierra County, New Mexico, have seen this much snow this close at hand. Snow even accumulated in the towns of Truth or Consequences and Elephant Butte during January 2007, but the warm high desert sun soon made most of it vanish. (Saturday, January 27, 2007, after some of the snow had melted and evaporated.) Even El Paso, Texas had the unusual challenge of what to do with several inches of snow; this being a particular issue in a town whose residents hardly know what a snow shovel looks like.
