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.

Below : Radio Shack's awning fell and it looks like they are closed for business, so did the awning for the Baca Weekly building.

New pictures added at the bottom of page taken in February 2007.
