SE NM Heavy Snow November 13th-15th, 1961.







Record heavy snows fell across the southern one half of New Mexico on November 13th - 15th, 1961. This are the heaviest snowfall totals for so early in the season on record. Many hunters in the Guadalupe and Sacramento mountains became stranded by the deep snow and drifts and had to be rescued. One account in the Artesia Daily Press states that five camps of 25 hunters were rescued near Mayhill alone. Others were rescued in the Guadalupe mountains. Note Elephant Butte Dam recorded 19.0" of snow from this storm.
