Santa Fe Speechless Moment: Snow

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hello Realty NM Broker License 16161


The great thing about snow is how snow in Santa Fe helps tell people we are not a community where palm trees surround swimming pools and people live and work in a hot desert climate. Santa Fe sits at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in a high desert climate rather than one that is hot. It is hot as a destination visitor and relocation market for people seeking a Santa Fe lifestyle or to finish a dream. This photograph happened a few minutes ago just outside my studio door. I love the way the snow makes our native southwest Chamisa, also know as Rabbitbrush plant look like it is growing cotton. Enjoy!

Hi Emily, Snow just adds such a nice touch to things.  It has an equalizing power when it covers things on the ground.  A junk yard takes on a whole different look with fresh snow cover.

Happy New Year Emily!   ---Gloria

Not the best photo...but one taken on the road in Georgia in December of a cotton field.

Hi Gloria, Doug - snow does have a way of telling a different story. Next time Doug is driving by the cotton field, make sure he stops the car and let's you do your magic. Thank you for stopping here.

Last year, our Sierra Nevadas had 200% of normal snow fall this time of year.  We had a virtual bumper crop of the white stuff, which just kept coming until late in the season.  However, this year we are experiencing the oposite.  I took a little ride up highway 50 today, and the mountains look pretty bare of the color white.

Emily I love the shot, but you can keep the snow ............ LOL

Even though we have not gotten any yet, I am sure that we will have more than our fair share before to long.

Gay, yes, snow is an event. It is rumored our 402 year old city has 12 snow plows. Snow does tend to create longer lines in the supermarket and frequent plan changes. We love snow. Snow means water!

Myrl, Ski Santa Fe is open. This is the first snow for 2012. Our weather seems to be news everyday. This morning it was warm and now it is snowing.

George, given your strong feelings about snow in Connecticut, I suspect Mother Nature will bring you some to talk about soon.

My first impression was that this was cotton, not snow. Quite interesting. :)

Steve, I think those first impressions fool the rabbits too. Snow has a way of making us see things differently. Thank you.

Patricia, the chamisa flowers are a bright yellow. When they are in blossom, most Santa Feans are sneezing.
