I grew up on a ranch in southeastern Colorado. Not many people know or have heard about Trinchera, but it looks like the weather service does!
308 PM MDT MON JUN 21 2004 THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN PUEBLO HAS ISSUED A * SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING FOR... LAS ANIMAS COUNTY IN SOUTHEAST COLORADO * UNTIL 415 PM MDT * AT 306 PM MDT...NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR SHOWED A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM CAPABLE OF PRODUCING PENNY SIZE HAIL. THIS STORM WAS LOCATED 22 MILES WEST OF TRINCHERA...AND WAS MOVING EAST AT 15 MPH. * SOME LOCATIONS AFFECTED WILL BE... 7 MILES SOUTHWEST OF TRINCHERA BY 415 PM MDT AT 306 PM A NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SPOTTER SAW PENNY SIZE HAIL 3 MILES 11 MILES SOUTH OF TRINIDAD.
In case you would like to visit, there is a post office (zip=81081), and about 12 residents. I used to have to ride a bus 18 miles to Kindergarten in Branson, Colorado (Go Bearcats!)
Truth be told, I was born in Raton, New Mexico, as it was a shorter drive from the ranch than going to Trinidad! I only spent those first two days in Raton, so I still consider myself a Colorado native.
