Snow Day in April!

This past week we knew we had a storm coming.  It mostly just showed rain but to be on the safe side we loaded up on propane, groceries and the like. And it’s a good thing we did!

Over the weekend we had a bit of rain and snow but it didn’t stick around and it really didn’t seem all that bad.  Then Sunday it all changed.  Around 3pm a little light snow started coming down.

A little light snow. No biggie!

And then around 5pm it really started falling.

Getting heavier!

The weather service predicted about 1-2″ of snow fall.  Boy, were they wrong!

Good morning! A good 6 inches or more and still falling!

The snow was supposed to stop by 10am.  But as of this writing at 11am it is still coming down heavy.  It’s supposed to turn to rain later in the day which will of course melt it all off and make everything a soupy, muddy mess.  As we are a mile and a half down a dirt road we will be staying put until everything dries out.  The 4 Runner can make it out if necessary but it’s better to stay put and enjoy this last (hopefully) snow storm of the season!  It really is quite beautiful and our new metal roof on the cabin is holding up well. Cheers!

Early morning light. Tons of snow!
The cabin looks so magical in the snow!  You see our wind turbine?  🙂

And the RV looks pretty damn cozy too.

Winter?? No wait, it’s spring! Hello, New Mexico! 

It’s a good thing we don’t have to be anywhere – we are pretty well snowed in for now. 🙂  We had to get up on the roof of the RV and clean off the solar panels and run the genny for a bit!  It’s always nice to have a back up system.

The road out. Not going anywhere!

  1. Have been enjoying the different peoples blogs for years and have only commented once, but never got a reply. Your place looks super! We too are full time RVers and have lived off grid on an ocean sailboat for 18 years. We sold the boat and moved into our land yacht (RV) 4 years ago and are in the process of buying off grid raw acreage back in the mountains about 150 miles (as the crow flies) to the east of you at 7500′ for our home base. We love the RV off grid lifestyle and are planning to build a simple metal roof over our rig and go the greenhouse-garden-chickens etc. Love to meet up with you folks! Larry & Francie
