Taking Some Time Off.

Sunday's Day Trip In The Southern Sacramento Mountains.
My wife and I enjoyed yet another beautiful fall day trip up the Penasco River Valley in the southern Sacs yesterday. And of course we stopped at Runyan Ranches and visited with Tom, Pam, and Camille. Zipper the zebra was a little agitated that my wife Diane was feeding the other animals too but she had her share of treats. 
Our mild start to the fall is doing funny things with the trees. Some have already lost their leaves, others are just starting to turn, and then there is the mixed bag of fully turned and totally brown or dropped. All in all another beautiful day topped off with a visit with our youngest daughter Kaytlyn, her husband Dylan, and our granddaughter Raeleigh Rose and grandson Bently in Alamogordo.

This will be my last blog post for awhile, maybe a couple of months. I was diagnosed with cancer recently and I'm undergoing surgery to have it removed in two days. Should all go well I'…

Low clouds and fog are working their way southward into Southeastern New Mexico once again behind a cold front. Here at our home in northwest Carlsbad our sky just went overcast at 7 AM MST. 
Local Observations At 7 AM MST indicate this also with the Roswell Airport reporting a broken layer of clouds 1,400' above the ground. The Artesia Airport was reporting an overcast layer at 1,300' and the Carlsbad Airport still reporting clear skies. The Hobbs Airport was reporting an overcast layer of stratus at 400' with a visibility of 2 miles in mist. 

Trapped In The Soup Bowl The Past Four Days.

Dawn broke over Southeastern New Mexico this morning with our skies once again obscured by low clouds and fog. This makes the fourth day in a day row that we have been locked in the soup bowl here in the Pecos Valley and parts of the Southeastern Plains. Visibility's especially at night and early in the mornings have been dropping down to less than a quarter of a mile at times along with areas of light drizzle. 
A cold front moved into the local area this past Tuesday and a moist low level upslope flow regime has persisted helping to produce the low clouds and fog. This is clearly seen in yesterday's MODIS satellite image of the area. Notice that the Guadalupe's, Sacramento's, and Capitan mountains are clear of the low clouds and fog as are the northern areas of the Southeastern Plains. Once again a temperature inversion and light winds aloft are responsible for keeping the Pecos Valley in the soup bowl.
