Snowed in in Taos?

Well, here we are in Taos, New Mexico at the home of our son and daughter-in-law. Here's a nice photo of their house in El Prado, just outside of Taos.

Today, February 22nd, is Rene and Bevin's six-month wedding anniversary. We are so happy for them as they continue to build a new life together.

The Sangre de Cristo Mountains are just west of the house, the snow-capped peaks bringing many wintertime visitors who come to ski.

Yesterday afternoon, I walked along their dirt road just after a light snowfall and photographed the sagebrush in the late afternoon sun.

Listening to weather reports yesterday, we did what we have never done before: we "skirted" the bottom of our rig with tarps weighted down with rocks in order to keep the cold and expected snow from getting underneath the rig and causing damage from the single-digit temperatures forecast for the next few nights.

This morning, we woke up to driving winds, constant snowfall, and a rig beginning to get snowed in.

So, we'll cozy up, play some games, take care of business, do some writing, and wait out the storm that is expected to drop 10-14 inches of snow by tomorrow morning.
