Moderate snow continues to fall for some areas of northern El Paso and Teller Counties, accumulating in the grass and yards. Meanwhile, in the plains and along the southern I-25 stretch, light rain/snow mix continues. Take it slow on the roadways - due to VERY strong winds, we are seeing blowing dirt and snow (depending on the region), which is tremendously reducing visibility.

It's not by ripping the wart out of your skin as you rip off the duct tape.
Instead, doctors say the tape seems to irritate the wart and cause an immune system reaction that attacks the warts.
In the study, patients wore tape over the wart. They occasionally removed the tape, soaked the skin and scraped the wart with an emery board or pumice stone.
The treatment continued for up to two months.
Eighty-five percent of patients treated with tape lost their warts. In contrast, standard treatment of freezing off warts with liquid nitrogen worked with 60 percent.
The research was done at Madigan Army Medical Center near Tacoma, Washington. It's in Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.
