Today we drove in rain, snow, and through a dust storm. When we left home this morning it was lightly raining and as soon as came up out of the valley the rain turned into snow. The snow continued fairly steady until we reached I40 in northern AZ. Once we got into New Mexico the snow returned until almost Albuquerque at which point the dust started blowing. The winds must have been in the 50-60 mph range. It only takes a few minutes in blowing cold snow to remind us of why we love living in the AZ desert. Yup it gets hot but we will take the heat any day over the cold!
This evening we are at Santa Rosa Lake State Park which is about 10 miles north of Santa Rosa NM. The lake is very low but the campground is nice and you can’t complain about the $14 rate. All total we drove 566 miles today. Tomorrow the goal is Greensburg KS. Hopefully the storms that they had there today (2” hail) will have calmed down a little.
