The temps drop a bit, and alamo goes straight back to the stone age, stores close, no significant attempts are made to clear roads so they just close entire highways, power outages, frozen pipe lines, and the community forgets how to read and drive ... Hilarious

I'll take this place over any other in winter.
This used to be the region to be in during the winter, but as the years go by the winters here are getting worse and worse, negating the benefit of being here during the rough winters.

I find it amusing that you consider the latest weather event, rough. A few inches of snow falls and people lose their minds. Try gorwing up in New England where they get a few inches of snow as a prelude to going outside and relaxing. Winters here are not getting worse. We have had 2 slightly less than normal winters temperature wise but nothing to indicate it's worse or less than a overall normal patern. Hop on over to the Global Warming thread to see the truly ignorant explinations of how cold winters is an indication of Global Warming, or how the sea is rising due to global warming, but on the television today, a program was talking about how the great lakes are droping in levels?
No, the weather here is not worse or better. it is relatively normal.

You say tomato I say tomato.? The climate changes all the time. it's called seasons. Want proof? Watch, in about 3 months, the leaves will return to the trees and the temps will be above 65 degrees during the day. Holly Bat Shit Robin, it's climate change all over again!:)
Have a wonderful holiday season!

Not seasonal weather change, CLIMATE CHANGE. Just like the Tularosa basin use to be an ocean and now we are desert. That is climate change.
Merry Christmas to you and yours

I justify considering it rough because this is out of character for the region. I actually grew up in the Midwest, where I am more than familiar with real winters. Not to mention being station in Alaska @ Elmendorf AFB and TDY to Eielson AFB where it reaches -40* regularly. A place where snow drifts can completely obscure buildings in a weekend, where one can shatter pistons in a engine if a start attempt is made on too cold a block. The perspective is further justified most by the locals inability to deal with this (actually rather mild winter), and overall lack of driving prowess

Exactly!!! How could anyone have anticipated this? When is the last time anything even remotely like this occurred in Alamogordo? February?

Our snow storm was an example of a weather event. Climate change is the sum of temperature changes over large areas of the earth over long periods of time. The average temperature of the earth is increasing and has been for some time. One result of global warming is that winter snow storms can be more severe than normal. The last snow storm of this magnitude in the Tularosa Basin was 22 years ago.

I believe that the first post in the thread was about temperature, not snow. I do remember some sort of kerfluffle about the cold back in February?

The average temperature has risen less that 1 degree across the globe, and this still cannot be attributed 100% to mankind. What we can guarantee 100% is that attempts to legislate and control countries that do not bow down to the U.N. climate control panel is nothing more than a giant ponzi scheme to redistribute wealth that most left leaning and socialist loving persons salivate over. Climate and Weather go hand in hand separate of mankind and usually against mankind's wishes.
Someone pointed out that the this basin used to be under water. It drained long before man was on the planet. Wonder what caused that warming and drought period? there are lakes in Texas that have drained and they have found grave sites, indicating that the lake was not always there? What caused it to form in the first place? My questions arise from this premise:
Who knows what the real normal climate is supposed to be? Who really believes that man can control it?
My answers would be, no-one, and not in a million years.
Our fair basin will get yet another weather event this week, and this is hardly an epic event. it is called weather and it is as unpredictable and the overall climate, as well as controllable.

How do you know the basin will get a weather event this week? Weather is unpredictable.
