Santa Rosa, NM Experiences White Independence Day

07-08 Santa Rosa Hail

I’m a little late to the party on this, but my holiday weekend was full of work in and around the new house.  As you can see above, the streets of Santa Rosa, NM required plowing on Wednesday.  Not from snow (it is July in New Mexico after all), but from hail.  These storms aren’t unheard of in this part of the country.  In fact, you may recall an even more intense hailstorm occurred near Amarillo, TX last year.  Given the sparse population in this part of the country, many of these events go unnoticed.  It just so happens two such storms have passed over or near cities in the last 15 months.
