New Mexico, like much of the West, is suffering through a dangerous drought. So this weekend when storm clouds rolled in over the Taos Pow Wow in northern New Mexico, nobody could complain. The rain was a blessing, but it did mean waiting through several rain delays: the regalia the dancers wear is priceless, passed down through generations and nobody expected them to dance through a soaking. So we waited, and waited and waited for nearly five hours for the storm to pass. When it finally cleared, we were treated to a spectacular display of drums and dancing that was totally worth the wait!
