Winter weather brings down boulder near Taos

TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) – A blast of winter hit the state hard with snow with some areas getting up to 11 inches.

But it wasn’t just snow falling.

The Department of Transportation says the wild weather also brought down a giant boulder near Taos.

Construction equipment moved it out of the roadway and no cars were hit.

Albuquerque also saw its share of snow Tuesday. The last time the city had snow in May was in 2008.

Experts say this late snow does not mean a wetter summer, but a larger shift happening right now with El Nino could mean more snow and rain for the upcoming winter
