view from my desert home this morning. there's another snow shower happening now, it's very granular, like small styrofoam balls :turned:
Quite a view.

Have you been to the top of any of those mountains?

no but it's part of a wilderness area so totally possible. if i was rich they'd bury the utility lines. but then i couldn't afford to live here :sweat:

according to forest service info, it's very rugged and no trails exist. the highest peak is about 7000 ft. it means a lot to me to live near wild places but i prefer to hike trails lol. yes i'm a wimp. people die out there :$

It does seem like one ardous trek. Do you live in a small community or is it a remote house in the middle of the desert?

it is a small community about ten miles from a bigger town, where i work. i have never lived in a city. there are drawbacks like no decent cinemas and restaurants are limited (although the mexican food is fantastic!) but with internet these things don't matter so much. phone service sucks but i have wifi calling :$ also it's safe enough here i've been gone for 2-3 weeks at a time and left a window open for my cat with no worries.

i've lived at this spot for two years next month

summer seems to have already started where i live... The drought reports said that we didn't fully recover from last year's drought, and no rain is expected during the rest of february and in early march, with warm temperatures and a lot of sun, which is very unusual for the end of february.

RBG your place looks pretty sweet... I grew up in and prefer forests, but I love the wilderness no matter the climate and locale. My uncle used to live in the Taos NM area (and for a time on Dennis Hopper's ranch) back in the 60s and 70s and it was a great area; hopefully still is. I'd love to hike Sycamore Canyon in Sedona AZ before I die (as well as some of the mountains I haven't hit in VT and NH).

Cool! I take it you like it there, or do you secretly long for a metropolis?

Nice! Yeah I bet the Sedona area is mobbed with people these days... siiiigh. I could do with fewer of them as well, esp when hiking.
I've been near those chiricahuas actually just not actually in them. Spent some time traveling through the Southwest when I was younger.
Stay safe in the storm... it was pretty icy and cold when I left for work this morning. Blegh.

We're all going to die from climate change aren't we?

It snowed here today, for the first time that anyone can figure. The snowline was 1,500ft today, which means parts of town were hit (the town's elevation ranges from 600 - 3,000 ft; figure that out yourself in metric :P ). So, within 3 months - we had fires burn everything, floods and mudslides wash away the burned areas, and now snow. What a crazy year.

At least (to compete with RBG) our backyard mountains got a nice dusting of snow (not my photo):

Wow, ha ha.... snow in LA. There were snow flurries once when I lived there; want to say it was around 2006-07. I was driving down Westwood Blvd between Olympic and Pico when I noticed it and it was a strange feeling for sure. I also only saw one lightning storm the entire time I lived there (late 90s), but they must be more frequent than snow.

I haven't been to Taos (driven past on I-25, and had our car 'destroyed' by hail just outside Taos), but I'm under the impression that it's so expensive that only the rich and their trophy homes are left (a bit like Santa Fe).

Some key consequences from their brochure:
SpoilerShow
by 2030 carbon dioxide levels have reached 437 parts
per million — which is unprecedented in the last 20
million years — and warming reaches 1.6°C.

While sea levels have risen 0.5 metres by 2050, the
increase may be 2–3 metres by 2100, and it is
understood from historical analogues that seas may
eventually rise by more than 25 metres.

2050: Thirty-five percent of the global land area, and 55
percent of the global population, are subject to more
than 20 days a year of lethal heat conditions, beyond
the threshold of human survivability

Food production is inadequate to feed the
global population and food prices skyrocket, as a
consequence of a one-fifth decline in crop yields, a
decline in the nutrition content of food crops, a
catastrophic decline in insect populations,
desertification, monsoon failure and chronic water
shortages, and conditions too hot for human habitation
in significant food-growing regions

Massive nonlinear events in the global
environment give rise to massive nonlinear societal
events. In this scenario, nations around the world
will be overwhelmed by the scale of change and
pernicious challenges, such as pandemic disease.

Armed conflict between nations over resources,
such as the Nile and its tributaries, is likely and
nuclear war is possible. The social consequences
range from increased religious fervor to outright
chaos.

Not just Cali. A quarter of the US could have record breaking heat this week. Shit is fucked. One of the best things about living in the PNW used to be the unparalleled beautiful summers. Now they come and I just count down the days until Autumn.
