Ok its not snow but hail 2 feet of it
Looks like snow.....
A lone thunderstorm dumped over a foot of hail in the town of Santa Rosa, N.M. Wednesday evening, leaving a surreal sight the day before the Fourth of July.
Photos from the Santa Rosa Fire Department showed snow plows clearing city streets clogged with accumulated hail drifts.
According to the National Weather Service in Albuquerque, hail up to golfball size pelted the city around 6:00 p.m. MDT.
Skylights were damaged and a roof was partially collapsed in the city of approximately 2,800 residents, about 105 miles east of Albuquerque, according to a report from the Albuquerque Journal.

As bizarre as this sounds, accumulating hail is not uncommon in the High Plains.
Northeast New Mexico sits in what meteorologists call "Hail Alley", a swath from southeast Wyoming and northeast Colorado to northeast New Mexico and the Texas Panhandle, where large hail falls on average at least three days a year.

This is due, in part, due to higher elevation. The less depth of warm air for a hailstone to fall through, the greater the chance of it reaching the ground before melting. Santa Rosa, N.M. lies at 4,616 feet above sea level.
