Since Jan. 4, some kind soul (as best I can tell, probably on Camino Ecuestre) has set up a meteorological station in Matthew Meadow and begun sharing the data on the Weather Underground. Minute-by-minute updates plus historical data and links to radar may be found at http://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KNMALBUQ209. Tip o’ the hat to whomever set this up.
Prior to this the nearest stations were down in Thomas Village (http://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KNMALBUQ168), up on Montano (http://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KNMALBUQ120), or south in the BioPark (http://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KNMALBUQ208 ).
Also of interest, the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network has a station near Matthew and Rio Grande — http://www.cocorahs.org/Maps/ViewMap.aspx?state=NM&county=BR. CoCoRaHS updates every morning at 7:00, but has more accurate hail and snow data.
And while we’re on the subject of useful weather tools, don’t forget to check NM DOT (http://nmroads.com/) for road conditions and construction notifications. The map also has a “Cameras and Message Signs:” menu option that will let you view statewide highway webcams. To view webcams, open the pull-down menu, check the Cameras box, and select a location.

Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 940 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 16 trips to carry that many people.
