The Nation

February 10, 1986

A winter storm swept across the Southwest, dumping two feet of snow on New Mexico, while a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing drizzle fell on the southern plains. As much as 15 inches of snow fell in the Texas Panhandle, and police closed a 120-mile stretch of Interstate 40 from Amarillo to Tucumcari, N.M. West Texas State University, near Amarillo, canceled today's classes. Up to a foot of fresh snow fell in Arizona's mountain ranges, and the deserts were soaked with rain. Very cold air continued to move south across the plains, the Mississippi Valley and much of the Southwest.
