    The Festival of Chocolate, on Nov. 12, will kick off the Festival of Trees, an event that has become popular with locals.

    There are very few times in life when you can be bad for a good cause. The 2011 Festival of Chocolate is one of those times.

    On Nov. 12, local and regional chefs, bakers and chocolatiers will tickle your taste buds with an array of edibles to kickoff the holiday season.

  • Storm bringing winds, some snow to NM

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A cold winter storm is buffeting New Mexico with very high winds and bringing some rain and snow to the state's high country.

    The storm front that moved out of Arizona early Saturday was producing wind gusts of more than 40 mph to Albuquerque at midday. Gusts between 60 mph and 70 mph were recorded in eastern and southern parts of the state. Winds gusted as high 47 mph at Los Alamos Airport shortly after 8:30 Saturday morning.

    National Weather Service meteorologist Maria Torres says some snow was falling in the state's northern mountains, but accumulations were light.
