Fall in Albuquerque is harshly comfortable.
After a few weeks of sizzling summer time rapidly decreasing temperatures, it’s nice to finally get a break plus experience pleasant weather before it drops below freezing at night.
There are a number of Fall traditions within the desert valley city. Towards the end of Fall there are the Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrations that coincide with Halloween plus last for afternoons or weeks into November. The Day of the Dead is a holiday that honors plus celebrates the lives of the deceased. Although Dia De Los Muertos was founded in Mexico, it is also celebrated in communities with a strong Mexican heritage like Albuquerque, San Diego, plus El Paso to name a few. But before Dia De Los Muertos, Albuquerque hosts a single of its most famous plus popular attractions—the International Balloon Fiesta. For many straight afternoons in November there are hundreds of sizzling air balloons littering the sky. There are also chances to ride in a single of the balloons, however it’s difficult if you’re sensitive to cold rapidly decreasing temperatures like I am. It’s still a few weeks out plus our weather is getting cold enough in Albuquerque to need the central furnace throughout the morning plus night. I have friends who recently bought a heat pump, however I’m still on the fence. It would upgrade both my a/c plus gas furnace, however my a/c is only many years old at this point. Should I upgrade my Heating & Air Conditioning plan this early on? It’s truthfully a question that I keep asking myself without getting any closer to an answer.
