First snow

No snow fell on NewMexiKen during the storm of the past two days, but welcome rain did — nearly 1/2-inch. Santa Fe had three inches of snow, Taos five, and most importantly, there was 13 at Taos Ski Valley (11,000 feet). The snow in the photo is among the trees and towers three miles from NewMexiKen’s backyard at 10,678 feet.
