We have experienced snow in Albuquerque before. Each year, there is usually a couple overnight dustings that melt by noon, and a few times over the past seven winters, there has been an accumulation of maybe a couple inches. This weekend, we finally got real snow. Snow that made the roads slick and driving dangerous. Snow that didn't melt during the day and accumulated over six inches in our area! Nothing compared to what most of the rest of the country has been getting, but tons for Albuquerque. Needless to say, much of Albuquerque closed down, our birthing center tour was cancelled, and we stayed home working on the long list of to-dos before Nathan arrives!
Of course, in true Albuquerque fashion, about 30 hours after these pictures were taken, it was 60 degrees and sunny and almost all of the snow had melted!
