Snow in Albuquerque
Expedition ("Babe") Thursday morning after snowfall in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.
Snow on motor vehicles in Albuquerque on December 16, 2010. More than an inch fell, covering the ground, but it had melted or soaked into the ground by sunrise because of mild temperatures.
That is the typical story for winter snow in Albuquerque; the winters are typically mild in spite of New Mexico's high elevation and location along the Continental Divide, which passes about a hundred miles to the west of our home in Albuquerque and almost within sight of our cabin in northern New Mexico.
