Current Conditions 2.1 NNW Downtown Carlsbad, NM

Our First Chase Of The Season - Wall Clouds, Hail Cores, Baby Foxes, And Century Plants.














To Top The Day Off We Get This At Midnight.




Golf ball to Lime size hail fell at our home and across Carlsbad, NM 
for minutes or so at midnight last night. One report of Tennis Ball size
hail in northwest Carlsbad. 1.24" of rain at our home.

My wife (Diane) and I went storm chasing today. Although there were a couple of Tornado Warnings issued for just south of Carlsbad, New Mexico...we failed to see one. We did see several wall clouds, which at times showed some rotation.

While I had my head stuck in the clouds Diane spotted two baby foxes poking their heads up out of their den. Click on the pictures to enlarge them. She also shot the beautiful picture of the New Mexico Century Plants at the Rest Stop along U.S. Hwy 62/180, just south of the NM/TX State line.

Several reports of Golf Ball size hail were noted along U.S. hwy 285 between Dayton Road, south of Artesia, south to near the Brantley Lake State Park Headquarters around 7:00 PM MDT this evening.

Earlier this evening I talked with one of my former co-workers and friend (Dave Rouse). He is working the night shift at the Indian Basin Gas Plant (Oxy, Inc) located 12 miles west-southwest of Seven Rivers, New Mexico, on Marathon Road (Eddy County Rd 401). Hail started falling at the plant at 7:05 PM MDT. It ended at 7:35 PM MDT. The hail ranged in size from golf balls to soft balls. The golf ball size hail piled up 2" inches deep on the ground and drifted. The soft ball size hail was fairly soft and shattered upon impact.

What a fun day...I had a blast chasing today's storms with my best friend...my wife! :)
