Deming, NM

Monday, December 19, 2011
The Escapees Ranch - Lakewood, NM 41 degrees’.

Packed him up head him up and moved Buster out, headed for Deming, NM today via El Paso, TX. There is packed snow on US 82 between Cloudcroft and Alamogordo, NM and north of Las Cruces, NM on US 70. Buster does not want to get cold wet feet today.

Well I did not think to check the Texas Dot site for road weather closings or warnings. Guadalupe Pass was snow covered we topped out about 5,920 feet and about twenty miles snow covered varying from a total of four inches with rain or ice. There were plows out but I kept Buster rolling slow and had no problems traveling. The wind was a blowing from the west southwest and was the worst near the end reaching Deming, NM. Arriving here we discovered the switch we turn off in Silver Sally when towing was not set correctly resulting in a dead battery.
Our ACER computer is not powering up properly, this is being written on backup computer. All my software disks are back at the ranch and I only have minimal programs on this computer. I usually use Outlook for e-mail display and not the g-mail display so everything is weird. Home and end with other function keys in a different location and no number pad on the side, messing up passwords and user names
After dinner six of us played Mexican train dominos’ George and Bonnie, Art and Sherry and Rich and Rosalie. Girls against Boys, tonight Girls win.
