Being up high in Silver City, N.M. it's been COLD at night (33 last night) and windy and cold in the day. We are at an elevation of almost 6000 feet here and the weather is reflecting it. Yesterday, we had bouts of rain, sleet, snow and hail! We're wearing our winter clothing again! Spring in the high desert!

Since it was so cold, we went to a few museums; the Mimbres Pottery exhibit in Western New Mexico State University and a rock museum nearby. Then we hunikered down inside and drank hot beverages!
