Woke up to the sound of rain! Rained all day – snowed about noon! In May!! At noon Mr. Teague and Joyce Teague Kistler had come in and were “raring” to go to Van Horn. Left at 4 after calling dad. Van Horn was having a sand storm! Got about 40 miles south of Carlsbad and the lights on the car would not work while the engine ran. So we stayed all night at a camp garage, luckily nearby
Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today:
Night Riders wearing hoods kidnap two lawyers in Gallup, NM. A book was later published about the incident. Snow in May – helps control the dust and J. G. Montijo, Amelia Earhart’s flight instructor, dies in a plane crash in Colorado.
