5:30 a.m. – Taos Municipal Schools (TMS) superintendent Lillian Torrez announced that schools are closed due to road conditions and a notification from Taos County that trucks are unable to work on clearing the roads.
Regarding snow plows, Taos County Manager Leandro Cordova said, "We started out yesterday but the snow was coming down so hard we had to wait until this morning to safely remove the snow. During white-out conditions we need to be concerned with the safety of our drivers and the public that may meet up with our large trucks." Cordova reports that 12 county plows are running and out on the road since 4 a.m.
