  • Hospital: NM man in good health after stranding

    PHOENIX (AP) — They spent 60 years together and traveled to Africa, China, Asia, South America and other parts of the world.

    But it was a relatively short drive from the Phoenix area to their home in Albuquerque, N.M., and a fateful decision to take a forest road as a shortcut that finally separated Dana and Elizabeth Davis.

    Dana Davis, 86, was recuperating Thursday in a hospital in Globe, Ariz., two days after the couple decided to try to walk out of the mountains after spending five nights in their broken-down car.

    It wasn't long before 82-year-old Elizabeth Davis collapsed and died.

  • Winter storm blasts New Mexico with snow, cold

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A severe winter blast has struck most of New Mexico, closing schools and shutting down major highways across the state.

    Motorists sought emergency shelter overnight as state officials closed both directions of Interstate 40 from Albuquerque to Gallup — part of the historic Route 66 — after blowing snow caused near-zero visibility.

    Authorities also shut down the state's entire length of Interstate 10, from the Texas line to the Arizona border, because of heavy snow and icy road conditions.
