Damages to Springfield and Baca County from the large amount of snow fall that
came on December 30, 2007 have not yet been assessed. Loss of livestock has
been around 10,000. It took a while for the rest of the state to realize that
this area was hit a lot harder than they were. The full extend of the amount of
snow was difficult for people to conprehend who were not here trying to get out
of their front doors.
: Radio Shack's awning fell and it looks like they are closed for business, so
did the awning for the Baca Weekly building.

I guess I won't be going to the bank drive through today anyway.
This guy is still digging his car out. He really needs to get to the liquor
store. Gee I was there and back already. Yep I got mine.
This is Gambles hardware and furniture store.. I think it used to have an
awning too. Gambles sustained a lot of damage. Lets get a little closer and
take a look see....
: Note the roof and the crack in the front of the building. The front windows
were all broken too. Lets look inside... I hope the thing does not fall on me...
: This is the east window display in Gambles. I don't see anything I want.
: Looking through the front door of Gambles all I can see is a roof. I can't
see anything else.
: Inside of Gambles Store, the roof could fall on us at any minute.
: Over time, the building just kept crumbling....
: Across the Street a garage didn't make it...
The city park was a nice place to pile snow taken from the streets .
