Buried Alive

Albuquerque Journal offers a timely reminder of how quickly the weather can turn on you, especially in the West, with a story of two people ambushed by the weekend’s blizzard. One minute you’re delivering newspapers and then almost before you know it, you’re trapped in your car under 12 feet of snow. A timely reminder of how important it is to keep your cell phone charged. This happened near Clovis on the eastern plains, but the same sudden storm swept through the Gila country, dumping more than a foot of snow in the high country in a few hours. The San Francisco River Basin went from zero snowpack to 100 percent over the weekend, the Mimbres Basin from 2/3 normal to nearly double the average, Rio Hondo from 56 to 180 percent.
