Alien Sightings!

May 8, 2010

Today we were going to try to make a trip to the UFO crash site near Roswell and visit downtown Roswell. We went down a dirt road, and parts of it were covered in white gypsum rock, the stuff that drywall is made out of. Unfortunately the road we took eventually became a dead end. The UFO crash site was now private property and closed to the public. So we went off to Roswell and looked around the shops. I bought a little green alien dude for the front of Scott's van. Perhaps we finally would be seeing storms soon now that we have a mascot!

We then decided to take a trip down to Carlsbad Caverns. The mountains and hills were very beautiful in this area! Unfortunately the Caverns had just closed. Do'h! So much for that. We decided to take one of the short hiking trails while we were here to make some use of our time. It was very scenic here!

On our way to Hobbs, NM for the night, we saw gravity wave clouds which were kind of neat. Later that night, I checked out the models once again and the SPC issued a moderate risk for day 2. Tomorrow we were going to be working our way northeast again. Unfortunately I was coming down with a cold, I had a sore throat and runny nose. Oh how wonderful!
