Seminole to Deming: Let the Storms Begin

Greetings from Deming, NM where we are lounging at the Holiday Inn Express, doing our laundry and eating hot soup.

We had been planning to stay at on Airbnb in Las Cruces on December 29th, however we received a message from our host regarding the snow storm and her concerns that we wouldn't be able to make it up the mountain road to her place (it's not plowed). After much discussion, we decided to instead find a hotel in Deming, NM.

Watching the weather reports, we were a little concerned, but figured that if we timed it right, we would be ok. Our 485 mile driving adventure started off following a storm (freezing rain, some snow) that left at least four sets of cars dented up on the side of the road. Temps got as low as 27 and as high as 40. That doesn't include wind chill. Brrr. 

We had perfect, if not cold, driving conditions.

Lows for the day ranged from 27-the mid 30s.
