Chavez Takes Credit For Late Season Snow Storm
TIJERAS CANYON--In a hastily called press conference, Mayor Martin Chavez cut a ribbon welcoming this mid-March snowstorm to Albuquerque this morning. "I would like to credit our westside developers for "greasing" the way for this precipitation by plowing up a lot of the vegetation on this west mesa. We are convinced this sucked the snow through the canyon." He also stated that city sponsored rebates may be available for any developer that produces evidence that their home-building has a beneficial effect on weather patterns. The mayor concluded the ceremony by riding through the canyon in a bubble-topped white Hummer "MayorMobile."
