I was wondering what this “snowpocalypse” looked like and finally decided to look on Accuweather, and came across this article, and out of the blue my hometown is mentioned, pretty strange that out of all the hundreds of thousand of places in the USA that could have been mentioned, my hometown was nearly singled out. We must be a ver significant city. Too bad about the horrible name, but, could be worse.
Drying Out for Burn Areas in SoCal Behind Desert Rain
2/10/2010 3:38 PM
The burn areas of California will catch a needed break from stormy weather through the weekend. First, a storm bringing flooding concerns and slippery snow to portions Arizona and New Mexico will shift east into Texas and the Deep South.
Rain showers bringing localized flash flooding concerns to Las Cruces, N.M., and El Paso, Texas, will taper off by the midday Thursday.
Motorists who travel along the I-40 corridor in Arizona or New Mexico could run into some slick travel from snow into early Thursday morning. Gusty winds to 35 mph could also create some blowing snow that further reduces the visibility and adds to tricky travel.
People who live in Albuquerque, N.M., will have slippery roads to contend with as a light coating of snow can be left behind the storm. – Source
