Snow on the Organs

A very light light sprinkling of snow on the Organ Mountains this morning.

This is our first significant moisture in at least 60 days.

2 Gates

The normal state for a gate is closed. Here’s a gate doing its duty.

This gate is gate in memory only. Most of the adobe wall it once served is gone.

Mesilla caught up with the rest of New Mexico this morning and got snow — the first this winter. There are years in which Mesilla gets no snow.

Here’s what San Albino looked like as the snow came down.

An adobe off the plaza:

The Rio Grande:

A pecan orchard:

About 1 pm the sun came out and the snow was mostly gone by evening.

Happy New Year!

2006 ends in a few hours and 2007 begins.

A traditional way to celebrate the start of the new year in this former Spanish colony is to set off fireworks.

The City Fathers have been trying to squelch that behavior for years. Here’s a lone fireworks stand in Mesilla, selling the bland, “safe” fireworks permitted by current law.

Best wishes for 2007!
