The snowfall we received in southern Colorado last night wasn't as bad as what was predicted; we had about 4 inches overall instead of 10.
Assuming southeastern New Mexico is in good "snow shape" tomorrow, we should be able to get to the DM84 / DM85 line for the AO27 pass which rises at 09/1937Z. From there, we'll head a bit southeast and be in DM74 for the next AO27 pass at 09/2116Z.
Finally, AO51 should find us on the DM73 / DM83 line when it comes up at 09/2336Z.
Wednesday, 10 Feb, will be a short grid day for us as we'll pull into Carlsbad, but I'll be on the DM72 / DM82 line at least for the AO27 pass at 10/2047Z; not sure about the AO51 passes later that afternoon.
We expect to be in Carlsbad until Friday morning.

Santa Rosa, NM / DM74
