On the average, Albuquerque sees the sun 280 days a year. The U.S. average is 205 days.

This morning the Sandia Mountains are hidden behind low lying clouds and visibility is limited. The clouds have no substance yet they hide the towering rugged peaks at the far East side of Albuquerque where the city ends and nature takes over.

For those of us who have lived in one season climates, a change of seasons is always welcome. I wouldn’t like to live with snow most of the year, or rain, or wind, humidity, or even sunshine.

The weather in Albuquerque suits most of us who live here.

If you ask most people what they like here, in Albuquerque, many will say ” the weather.” If you press them for more reasons they like the city, the conversation tends to breaks down.

Weather, thankfully, is one of the few things we can still all talk about.

Not many would disagree with the title of this post, or the photograph.

Our conversation, though,would really deteriorate when we discussed whether Albuquerque is a good place to live.
