We in New Mexico like to make fun of Texans and the silly things they do when they are in New Mexico. Thankfully this Texas family survived.
Rescuers on Wednesday pulled a Texas family from an SUV that had been buried in a snowdrift on a rural New Mexico highway for nearly two days.
State police said rescuers had to dig through 4 feet of ice and snow to free the Higgins family, whose red GMC Yukon got stuck on U.S. 56 near Springer when a blizzard moved through the area Monday.
The Higginses were among 32 vehicles state police and guardsmen rescued from the storm, but they were the only ones who police say needed medical attention.
This incident occurred on 21 December when New Mexico had a big storm and Springer is located in the northern part of the state near interstate 25.
