And It Came Down


Before I left for my class the snowflakes were small and not really a threat on the roads. This was the scene on Old Pecos Trail three hours later on my way home. It made me long for some Mexican hot chocolate so I headed straight home.

It does look a bit 'fresh' Randy, what makes Mexican hot chocolate so good? Does it have chilli in it?

Oh ... so white ! makes me happy !

Elettra said...

very impressive!

Traveling Hawk said...

No, this is impossible! Snow already in Santa Fe? The street looks fabulous with the white snow, lovely!

VP said...

Lovely picture. Snow is always beautiful seen from afar or in a photo, but quite dangerous when it comes where we are not used to it.

Kathy said...

It's beginning to look like a winter wonderland.

Perhaps someday you will share with us something about all these classes you take?

Faylinn said...

I love the snowy shots!
Have a good day..

Thérèse said...

Steffe said...

Looks cold. I might be able to shoot a similar scene very soon.

wow - amazing
I always think of the lyric
'lost in a snow filled sky' (come undone - duran duran)

Meagane said...

Again... all we have is drippy rain! Your views are wonderful, Randy!

Halcyon said...

This is about how it looks outside this morning here. Maybe a hot cocoa is just what I need this morning!

Stephen said...

That's a really nice photo. Just sort of ... peaceful. Love it!

Luis Gomez said...

Oh Randy Wow! It looks nice.

Lúcia said...

It's so cool to see snow, sometimes I feel a bit envious because we don't have it here, but I hate winter, so I'm glad enough to see your snowy shots. ;-)

Lowell said...

To head straight home was probably the smartest thing you could do! I've experienced enough snow (having lived in Minnesota) for a lifetime, but I must admit this is a beautiful scene. Pristine!

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

Wow Randy... I heard on the news this morning that snow is blanketing the southwest... lovely but dangerous for drivers. Keep safe.

Sharon said...

Winter has arrived in Santa Fe!

Tanya said...

beautiful snow...we still haven't gotten any...i'm jealous!

parker said...

Nice day to get the fireplace going and burn a little pinyon wood, while having warm drinks of choice!

The snow and adobe really makes for a fine pic!

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Nice to look at but I am glad I don't have to be in it. You enjoy it Randy.

TexWisGirl said...

Judy said...

Ron said...

We woke up to snow here too (Kansas) this morning and a brisk 19 degrees.

Ser Vlad said...

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

I miss that white so so much. Can't wait! ;)

Have a nice life man!

Sandy said...

Oh My goodness you have me craving a mexican hot chocolate too now! Stay warm! =)

RedPat said...

Wow! I am sure not looking forward to that. It is wet and grey here in downtown Toronto!

Electric Addict said...

i do enjoy seeing snow settled and untouched. winter wonderland

Light-In-A-Box said...

Randy, looks like were in the same situation, lots of snow! Same time too.. Congrats on your finishing school, take it easy for awhile.
Hmmmmm, I have a strange craving for hot chocolate now...

AGMPRISMA said...

I like snow
I will made for you a photo of chocolate con churros soon.
Greetings.

lifeisaroadtrip said...

That is a picture perfect shot, Randy. It even makes ME want some hot chocolate.

Jack said...

Seeing all of your snow made me start to twitch.

cieldequimper said...

So what's Mexican cocoa?

I'm sort of jealous. Too mild here...

T. Becque said...

I'd say! I'd love to have snow now, perfect for the holidays! But I know, it's probably not great to live in it all the time (so I've heard :)

Magpie said...

I'm going to assume that Mexican Hot Chocolate has some spice to it...a little heat. Looks like the perfect day for it.

Regina K said...

Looks so pretty.

becky said...

Gorgeous photo, Randy. You know, I was at work all day on monday & it didn't seem to be snowing that hard, though the roads were quite icy in the evening & i heard it was below zero last night. This morning was gorgeous, but missed the photo op as I was on my way to work. Supposed to have icy fog in the morning, so i hope to get out & about w/ the camera. Hope your speaking gig went well, what class was that for & what did you speak on?

becky said...

PS-current fave hot choc- spicy aztec hot choc from lake champlain, found at whole foods. make w/ real milk & top w/ whipped cream- yum-o! i am totally hooked. found it the chocolate section. I'm sure you could spice it up w/ a little liquor if you so prefer.

Sonya Heilmann said...

Wow, look at all that snow! I hope you enjoyed your Mexican hot chocolate!

Kate said...

Can't wait to show this to Jim since he feels already sick of MN snow...so what are we doing...going to SF for the winter??!! No brainer...we love it (and the people) there!
Taking a break from addressing Christmas cards and guess some hot cocoa (MN version) is in order after reading your post. Yes, I still send holiday cards; it wouldn't be Christmas without them!!

JM said...

Snow and adobe, what a great combination!

Dawn said...

Wow. I didn't know you got snow like that there?!?
Your place looks like mine now....isn't that strange?
~~me, from up north!

BlueShell said...

Oh...you've got snow...
I have rain..no snow at all....
