Snowstorm hits Hobbs area
HOBBS — The latest winter storm to pass through New Mexico has left behind plenty of snow in southeastern New Mexico.
Weather spotters reported about 12 inches of snow on the ground in Hobbs by Monday evening. That’s the most snow the community has seen since Nov. 25, 1980, when 10 inches fell.
Roads throughout the area were snow-packed and icy, and state transportation workers were warning travelers of white-out conditions.
