So a few minutes ago I took a break. This surprised me. I clicked on the Ruidoso webcam to see what it looked like in town, and saw this:
OK, the snow plows have been through and all that, but I was stunned by the lack of snow on the sidewalks and along the curbs, in those protected places where it tends to collect. There is some on roofs, but otherwise ....? They didn't get as much as I did out here, as I already knew, but still ...! It appears that most of their snow is already gone!
Here is why I'm surprised. This is out my front door:
I've had some melt, too, (the truck was fully covered this morning) but it seems that I must have had a lot more snow than they did in town. It is interesting that it is actually melting because 25° is the highest temp I've seen today.
15 car miles or about 10 crow miles surely can make a difference!
