Two mornings in a row, I awoke to white all around me. It snowed overnight leaving a light layer on the bushes and ground. It was somewhat of a surprise as it had been unseasonably warm.
The last week in October was a little early to see a winter wonderland in southern New Mexico. Although, when I lived in central Utah in the 1990s, I remember the first snow was normally by Halloween.
It was short lived however, because on both days it melted away by noon. Still, it was a welcome reminder that the seasons were changing and cooler temperatures were to arrive soon.
