From the paper:
“We’ve had people who thought they just go down the street to the store and got stuck, they call their family members for help and they end up getting stuck,” Armendariz said. “What happens is that our emergency rescue crew goes out and they too get stuck.”
The article also noted that the City of Carlsbad, NM had called in the National Guard, but they are stuck in the next county.
Even the paper is stuck. The truck with their print edition is about twenty miles away.
There are apparently no snow plows in Carlsbad. Today is sunny and a little above freezing and still. I plan on going out in a bit, on my bicycle, to look at all the stuck people. Perhaps I will get stuck in solidarity.
Total accumulation: 15 inches.
