Snowed In On Vacation? What More Could I Possibly Ask For?

We were scheduled to leave for home today but something wonderful happened. It snowed more than a foot here in Ruidoso, New Mexico (within about 36 hours) which means there have been road closings and weather alerts all over the place. If you click on the link above you can see what it looks like here today on the Ruidoso Web Cam. It's like being in a fairytale.

By the way, I am in the old stomping grounds of my friend Jeri, who writes In The Gutter and is currently living in England. So Jeri, just wanted to let you know everything is right here in the world of Ruidoso. Wish you were here...

Although I would have once upon a time jumped in the 4 Runner and gone in spite of the warnings, I know I'm no longer bullet proof, so we chose to stay another night. Yippppeeeeeeeeeeeee! I also got to ski another day and the fresh snow was as light and powdery as it gets.

Everything is covered in snow and looks like a perfect Winter Wonderland. However, no more storms are in the forecast, so we'll be going home tomorrow. *sniff, sniff*

Still, an extra day here has been like a little slice of Heaven....

I have lots of pictures to show you but meanwhile, check THIS and THIS out!

It looks beautiful. I think you need to stay and rest up. Maybe wait till it melts!

It is still snowing here and will be (according to weather boy) all night long.

So glad you're having a great time!
