Where is Cheyenne? They are getting dumped on... Had a bazillion accidents and finally gave up and closed the interstates. >Slow moving winter storm dumps on the west. ABQ is staying warm enough for it not to be a problem. Probably Santa Fe is dicier.
This site lists Sept 26th as a common 1st frost date for Albuquerque, NM.
5/25 for last frost in the spring.

If these dates are still roughly accurate, then I guess I can't complain about last week's killing frosts.
