As a not so subtle reminder that it is really the second week in December, we awoke this morning to a 15° temperature and a wind gusting to 20 mph. It was so cold that all the geese had turned white, and the cranes were standing frozen into the shallow water where they spend the night. It was Buh Buh Burrrrrr!
Last Saturday night we went into Socorro for the Christmas Electric Light Parade. We claimed a spot in the old town plaza, which was all decked out in Christmas lights and farolitos (or Luminarias), to view the annual December spectacle
The parade was a nice small town affair with decorated cop-cars and fire engines, floats, and motorcycles.
Anything that could carry a string of lights had one…..even the ubiquitous cowgirls and horses.
From the parade we went out for some New Mexican eats, and were home by 9:30!. WEEEHAAAAA! Talk about your late night party animals!
