Two days short of three weeks to the day when the first snowflakes started falling and snow can still be found in and around the Artesia, New Mexico area. Not something that we see very often here. the last time I saw snow on the ground this long was after the Christmas Week Storm of 1997.
The has melted in the Carlsbad area but not in Roswell where the National Weather Service Climate Co-Op Station was still reporting an inch of snow on the ground as of yesterday...making this nineteen days in a row now with one inch or more of snow on the ground.
The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
