Freak storm causes blizzard conditions in New Mexico

SAN JUAN COUNTY — The last blast of a storm that began Sunday and continued into Monday threw San Juan County a curve ball: blizzard conditions for about one and one-half hours.

The Wyoming-style blow topped out with a 58 mph gust recorded at 8:11 p.m. at Four Corners Regional Airport. In its wake was an inch-thick slab of ice with hail and snow grains embedded within it, and a deceptive inch to inch and a half covering of powdery, wind-blown snow.

San Juan County has been hit with several days of minus zero temperatures this month, along with more than a foot of snow over about a three-week period.
