Snowiest Thanksgiving in Albuquerque history

Shatters previous record.

By mid-day Thursday, 3.9 inches of snow had fallen at the Albuquerque International Sunport, the city’s official climate site, said Alyssa Clements, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Albuquerque.

That far surpassed the previous snowiest Thanksgiving record set back in 1934 when the city had 1.5 inches of snow, she said.

The entire city was blanketed with 4 to 8 inches of snow.

Other areas in the state also saw lots of snow: 10 to 12 inches in Sandia Park, more than 9 inches in Glorieta and 6 to 8 inches in Santa Fe.

  1. Why does this not surprise me? I noticed this morning they are having winter storm warnings in southern CA mountains, even for Descanso (which is more foothills than mountain).

    Anyway, one of the phone calls to family I made yesterday one of the liberals insisted that the blizzard that just hit northern CA was due to “global warming”….

    Where I am (southern AZ) we have been having torrential rain with high winds and threats of flash floods, etc. Not too bad as long as you stay in the house!
