"What a Difference a Day Makes"

We are learning about the different weather changes that occur here in Santa Fe. One acquaintance told me that the windy months are March and October. We are talking HIGH winds here, folks. On a previous drive from PA to Santa Fe in March, we were blasted by winds as we crossed from Colorado into New Mexico. I remember wanting to stop at a rest area to let the dogs out of the car for a break, and we could not even open the car doors because of the force of the wind.

 One can actually watch the storms come over the mountains here. Yesterday, we awoke to a steady snowfall, and we drove through nearly white out conditions to have brunch with our gallery owner friends Larry and Linda. By the time we left the restaurant at 2:30, the sun was shining and the snow had completely disappeared!

  Mark Twain wrote "If you don't like the weather in New England, then wait a few minutes." In these times of extreme climate changes, his statement could apply to all 50 states.

 Twain was no doubt smiling with us at the beautiful sunset we witnessed this evening over the Cerillos Mountains. A promise of 70 degree weather by the end of the week. Love this place!!!!

  1. Out here, we are surrounded by elemental energies: wind, air, sun, water in the forms of snow, clouds and rain. There are those who think the high desert is dead, dry and dull. But it isn't so: God paints the skies for us in different ways every day, birdsong abounds, jackrabbits tempt the dogs outside the coyote fence, the light is crystalline, and we feel the presence of creativity within the spaces of these ancient lands every day.
