Resettled in Albuquerque

We will now end radio silence and report that the Brewers' move to New Mexico has been a success. We're unpacked and put away, so it looks and feels as if we've been in our new house much longer than, um, five days.

Our house overlooks Summit Park, in a leafy neighborhood north of the University of New Mexico. Within walking distance of both Nob Hill and UNM, where I resume teaching part-time in January. The place is exactly what we were looking for.

Albuquerque's been hit with some big thunderstorms this week, and it's clear our arrival has ended the drought. You're welcome, New Mexico.

Other truly New Mexican treats: incredible sunrises, green chile chicken enchiladas, a roadrunner bobbing around in our front yard, and the International Balloon Fiesta filling the skies with hot-air balloons. The Land of Entrapment certainly knows how to welcome its own back home.

I am now filled to my moldy Pacific Northwest gills with New Mexico homesickness. Thank you. Oh, but enjoy a good green chile cheeseburger for me, if you would! Welcome home, Brewers!

Congrats on the successful move, and send some of the rain our way!

NM sounds like a great place to live. Glad the move went well.

I've always loved traveling in New Mexico. Years ago, I broke down and was stuck there for two days. But where? Lordsburg, that's where. Sheesh.
