Welcome to Wringer Weather! Bomb Cyclone #2

Two days ago, our official high temperature here in New Mexico was 92. Yesterday our high was 84. Then the second bomb cyclone in less than a month hit. Right now, the temperature is just 1 degree above freezing.

From what I’m seeing on the news, many parts of the United States are having a blizzard right now, and thousands are without power. Yikes! According to our weather forecast, we’re supposed to get some snow here, too, within the next couple of days.

I’m calling this season “Wringer.” That’s Spring, with Winter at both ends.

I took this short video of our two dogs playing in the snow on March 4. Please ignore the hiney sniff at the end. Also, you may want to keep the sound off. (Note to self: Cut the silly commentary when making videos. 😁)

UPDATE ADDED 7 p.m. Mountain Time: I just read an article on AccuWeather written by meteorologist Brian Lada that says Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin got brown, yellow, and orange tinted snow caused by dust blowing hundreds of miles from New Mexico and west Texas. No wonder I almost blew over 3 times yesterday!

    My poor pup is more than ready for this snow to go away. He’s had a hard time this winter.

    We got hit pretty good by the storm. Not as bad as they said, praise God, but we got a few inches I had to shovel this morning. It will just end up being good moisture. We will like that when it gets in the 90s this summer. I hope winter is over though. 🙂 Cute doggies! God bless!

      I’m glad your weather wasn’t as bad as predicted. I was hoping you didn’t get hit too hard.

      Thanks for the compliment, our fur babies bring us a lot of joy. The poodle was still a growing pup in April 2014 when my husband and I found him on the streets, injured, covered in 30+ ticks and mites, and on the brink of starvation. My stepdaughter and I found the big dog a little over a two years later, not quite as starved, but close. She’s probably a yellow lab German shepherd mix, with maybe some boxer and bully. She was about a year old when we found her, according to the vet. She weighs about 70 pounds now, but she thinks she is a lap dog, just like the 20 pound poodle!

    LOVE “Wringer”! Hope you guys don’t lose your power.

    Of course I had to leave the sound on after you said that! You have a lovely voice 🙂

    (I, too, always say, “You TELL ‘im!” when addressing barking dogs and my neighbor’s three big, LOUD parrots!)

      Lol. My voice sounds goofy to me. But thanks.
