Los Lunas, New Mexico.

It is day zero of this year’s Storm Chasing Trip. I have targeted Central Kansas for Sunday’s activities (and a little bit of Saturday night’s).

I left after a good day at work; I’m in Los Lunas, New Mexico, just south of Albuquerque. The drive has been pleasant thus far. I thought I heard gun shots at this hotel but it was happening with a regular basis so I figured it was fireworks or something. No one else was getting hysterical so I didn’t either.

Roads in New Mexico are mostly very rough and in need of repair. However, the Highway 26 between Deming and Hutch, a shortcut between Interstates 10 and 25, isn’t too bad.
