Arctic front brings heavy snow to Northern N.M…..

ALBUQUERQUE — Northern and central parts of New Mexico have been struck by an arctic front, bringing in heavy snow and causing road closures.

The Department of Transportation reported heavy snow around Chama and Tierra Amarilla on Sunday. Officials say heavy snow along Interstate 25 from Glorieta Pass to the Colorado border also forced some motorists off the road. Santa Fe officials reported multiple accidents on Interstate 25 and that part of the interstate was closed due to bad weather.

The National Weather Service reports a winter storm warning remains in effect for parts of New Mexico until early Monday.

The ladybug-shaped balloon is called “She’s A Lady.”

Crews are working to extricate the balloon from the light pole; all occupants got out unharmed.

Around 8 this morning, another balloon hit a power line and trees near Edith Boulevard and Vineyard Road, but no one was hurt, according to a report on KOAT-TV.

PNM is reporting a power outage near 2nd and Montano NW related to an earlier balloon mishap that has left 2,226 customers without electricity.
