Autumn in Albuquerque is harshly comfortable. After a few months of sizzling summer time temperatures, it’s nice to finally get a cut plus experience pleasant weather before it drops below frigid at night. There are a number of Autumn traditions within the desert valley city. Towards the end of Autumn 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 love Albuquerque, San Diego, plus El Paso to name a few. But before Dia De Los Muertos, Albuquerque hosts one of its most famous plus popular attractions—the International Balloon Fiesta. For many straight afternoons in October there are hundreds of sizzling air balloons littering the sky. There are also options to ride in one of the balloons, but it’s tough if you’re sensitive to frigid temperatures love I am. It’s still a few weeks out plus our weather is getting frigid enough in Albuquerque to need the central heating system throughout the day plus night. I have friends who recently purchased a heat pump, but I’m still on the fence. It would replace both our air conditioning plus furnace, but our air conditioning is only many years outdated at this point. Should I replace our Heating plus Air Conditioning system this early on? It’s entirely a question that I keep asking myself without getting any closer to an answer.
