The report has always been rain then snow. I didn't know you were in
the panhandle areas of tx or ok........A reports are still calling for
12-16 inches of snow. Winds will be 25-30. Look at weather.com
Hey, Larry, will that rain on the desert be a good thing?
I sure hope so. Have the tv on this morning, but nothing so far
about the storm. How far did it go and was there snow with it?
Called our friends in Oklahoma and haven't heard anything back
from them either.
It has been pretty much a nasty day here in NE New Mexico, high winds and snow made for white out conditions all day and its still howling now. Weather guys say the winds are supposed to start easing off around 5am. When we had to brace up a power pole that the ice, snow and wind snapped about dark we had 3 to 4 foot drifts that will probably be double that by morning if the wind quit. Should make digging out lots of fun in the morning.
BMR, I'm sure glad you asked if we were all safe and not "sane". The storm started here about 3 AM Monday with rain, had 1.4" in the gauge before it started snowing about 2 PM on Monday, added .6 after the change to snow. Im not sure how accurate that is, since it came in laterally about 40 mph. All I've got here is horses now, got them all fed and out of the wind. Tuesday morning all was nice and still and starting to melt. All of the highways in all directions from me were closed. I am 90 miles west of Amarillo TX. I havent heard of any bad mishaps locally. Tuesday had the vet out to pull coggins and float some teeth on a couple of sold horses so they can be "relocated" on Friday. Ya'll take care up there this winter, Ill be headed up late Jan after the Denver stock show to see how things look along the 49th.
