Snow in the Desert March 2nd 2023

A few days ago it was 65 and really windy, today it’s 36 and snowing. If you haven’t seen snow in the desert watch the video. I always loved watching snow storms in Minnesota, when we decided to move to New Mexico it was my fear of not seeing snow. But it snows here a couple times a year, luckily though it usually isn’t much or lasts long. We get just enough snow that I enjoy it.

Snowy Day here at Plateau Hame De Colquhoun

This winter we finally got a little bit of snow! It’s very pretty, but we are glad it only lasts a day or so.

This morning I let the dogs out, thinking they wouldn’t stay out to long.. But nope the boys (Dreugan and Amigo) don’t want to come in, not even for breakfast. Weillow (Our 12 year old) on the other hand couldn’t get back in fast enough.

So now I sit here, work on a few Plateau Hame De Colquhoun things, drink some coffee and wait for the boys to let me know when they want in.

Today is one those days we are winging it on what we do. We want to go to Albuquerque and pickup few things for JAFO Productions and would also like to return a Masters propane heater we bought at Tractor Supply Co. .

We wanted a heater with a more Btu for the RV, and use the Buddy heater in the Greenroom or the Studio when we are in them. So we bought a 18,000 btu Masters, but it isn’t working right. It will ignite but after 15 minutes it shut off, then nothing.. We’ve changed tanks, tried it in different locations, blew it out. It Ignited and ran for a couple hours, then shut off, now won’t light. Even letting it sit for 12 hours . We are thinking the Thermocoupler is bad. If it was something we had for awhile we’d fix it, but we haven’t even been able to use it.

Snow Capped Mountain views

View of the Snow top mountains from Plateau Hame De Colquhoun . This morning the 6th of January most of that snow is gone. But still very beautiful views. When we looked at the property before purchasing the views were the selling point. 75% of the views are mountains, we can see Mount Taylor by Grant, Sandia by Albuquerque.  We do get military aircraft traffic, a lot of refueling practices, maybe even a few UFOs.

Snow, Getting ready for Open Mic!

What a day! Woke up this morning with 2 inches of snow, a few hours later the snow is gone. Finally was able to get the RV vacuumed!

Due to the snow and ground being wet we weren’t able to get the outside work done like needed. Though gave some time to get a few things ready for next weekend…
