Heck of a Snowstorm

I got caught in the snow storm that hit southern Colorado and northern Santa Fe. Good think my car is in the shop because I seriously considered taking the Box to Santa Fe. Fortunately we took the 4 Runner up there and ended up getting walloped with 2 feet of snow. Skiing was awesome though!

As I was heading up I-25, there was a state trooper behind me. He turned on his lights and I looked at my speed (5 mph over) and thought he was after me. Fortunately, he stopped in the middle of the road and shut down I-25. We were the last car to make it.

Anybody else get caught in the storm?

I want some snow I spent arse-loads of money on snow equipment for the box, and I love snow. Something is screwed up with the weather if you guys down in texas are getting snow and up here in PA it's been sunny and 50... At least I get to have to top down comfortably, though

As a snow-lover and a convertible owner, I'm torn... do I want snow or do I enjoy global warming for all it's worth?

I just got finished driving back from Fort Worth to Los Angeles on I-10 in my truck. I had considered I-40, but figured weather was about to get really nasty. Glad I stuck with boring I-10

I didn't get caught in the storm but I'm heading back to Albuquerque in 10 days. I'm from the East Mountain area and I plan on going up to Taos to do a little winter climbing. I hope the snow sticks around up there, its easier to kick steps than to climb on icy rock.
