Snow

 
In the East Mountains of Albuquerque, there's an advantage during the holiday season.  Looking eastward through the canyon, the Sandia Mountains rise at a perfect distance when viewed from behind my house. This makes for most excellent and amazing sunrises.  A huge perk of living here is that since the altitude is about a thousand feet higher than in the heart of town,  it's nearly always five to ten degrees cooler.

Heading further east into Tijeras, Cedar Crest, and Sandia Crest the altitude climbs gradually higher.  Winter months can be frigid (by NM standards) there so much more ice can be associated with snow fall.  This is fabulous for skiers, not so much for driving!  Well....actually, if flurries are big enough, cruising down Scenic Hwy 333 in East ABQ feels and looks just like doing warp six!

My point is that my location is high enough to be cooler in Summer and just cold enough for beautiful snow flurries that rarely stick for very long. This is the best of both worlds in my worldview because I witness the beauty of a Winter Wonderland just long enough to appreciate it without much danger of  the snow freezing. When it does, it is never for longer than a few days, possibly a week in occasional extreme weather. In fact, it usually melts within a day or so. Clobbering my unsuspecting husband and felines with snowballs has  to be done pretty quick!
