Rare snowfall blankets desert

Headlights capture snowflakes

Snowflakes caught between a digital camera lens and a passing car Tuesday night look as big as baseballs. Intermittent snowfall since Sunday is estimated at three inches. It is the first substantital snowfall in Pecos since Halloween, 1993. Sleet-slick streets early Wednesday gave way to clearing skies and warmer temperatures in the afternoon.
