My wife and I took a drive from Carlsbad to Artesia and then west to Cloudcroft yesterday. I wanted to get out earlier and do this but I came down with the flu, was working, the roads got shut down, and finally after five days I was able to get out and take these.

I shot this photo in the Artesia Wal Mart Parking lot just before sunset yesterday. Simply incredible seeing how much snow is still on the ground up there and elsewhere across SE NM and how big the drifts are five days later.

Even though I live in Carlsbad now Artesia is where I grew up. Most of my family still lives there. You can see more of these incredible photos of the city and more taken five days after the first snowflakes started falling during the later afternoon of Saturday, Dec 26, 2015.
