I'm moving from New York City to Albuquerque to be with my girlfriend who lives there, and a big problem I have here in damp and humid New York is house centipedes (the yellowish brown ones with the long legs and antennae) to the point where it's become a pest problem in my apartment. I jokingly asked if ABQ has any, and she had no idea what they were, and assured me they don't live in the hot, dry climate of ABQ. However, a friend of hers said she saw 2 of them at her grandmothers house, and described them accurately for me to know she was talking about house centipedes and not any other species of centipede.
So, from anyone's experience, are house centipedes a thing in Albuquerque? I'm not afraid or anything, I'm asking more so to prove a point to my girlfriend as a joke, since she's still adamant about there not being any lol
With the temps reaching up to 98 with a high humidity, it will be a lot worse than we're used to. Please drink plenty of water and don't spend too long in the heat. And to those of you with Swamp coolers, good luck. Remember the Swamp cooler will not be as effective as it was during the low humidity 100 degree temps we had a few weeks ago.
Just for those few people who are worried when they look at this sub, don't be too worried.
Albuquerque is still majority Hispanic and majority democrat. Albuquerque does have racism and racial inequality issues. I know it seems skewed when every "minority" on this sub says they strongly support Trump and Pearce but they are not the vast majority who don't use reddit. Just don't let this sub paint Albuquerque in a bad light for you.
Edit: Also there is more to Albuquerque than the NE Heights and Nob Hill.
I know similar questions get asked to this a lot, but, like everyone, I think I am super duper unique and am asking again anyway. My husband and I are moving to Albuquerque sometime in mid to late September. My mom (who lived in Albuquerque once upon a time) has graciously gotten us tickets to visit in late August. My mom and I will be there for five days and my husband will join us for the last two. One of those days is our first anniversary. I am hoping to do several things during that time. I am hoping to tour some rental houses/apartments, get a feeling for different neighborhoods, and maybe do a couple of fun touristy things. Does anyone have a spot or two that really encapsulates the feeling of a particular neighborhood? Does anyone have an amazing place to go for the evening of our anniversary? Any other ideas of how best to use our time there?
Im looking to get a cheap but reliable vehicle. Is anyone selling a car that they would be willing to rent to own to us?
My girlfriend lives a few blocks from UNM. Her cat got out a couple nights ago and hasn't showed up yet. We've made some posts on facebook and are putting out flyers, but if any of y'all could help spread the word, we'd appreciate it. His name is Dickens and he's small with short, black hair and some white spots on his front. He's young, just about a year old, and he's really sweet, if a bit rowdy. We'd love to have our guy home and safe, so any info is appreciated. There are more details here. Thanks again for any help you can give us.
Hello everyone! I am currently getting closer to moving out from where I live (AR) to New Mexico. I only spent a week there but instantly fell in love with it. A few questions about the place:
1) How is ABQ for immigrants? I am Indian, have an accent and do all of the Indian things like listening to Bollywood music and making curry. 2) Is it better to move to ABQ directly or look for an apartment somewhere near ABQ and commute to work in ABQ? 3) What are areas to avoid while looking for apt in or around ABQ?
Used Tree Doctors in the past, had some pretty gnarly trees near some power lines in the back yard, and they did fantastic work when no one else would touch it. Now they have lost their crew. Looking for recommendations for an legit outfit that can remove a pretty tall tree at a reasonable rate. Thank you for any information and recommendations!!!
I've done most of my hiking in Northern California, so I'm most used to being on the lookout for poison oak and ticks. Anything, aside from elevation and hydration, I should know to look for while hiking in the Sandias? I'm planning on going for around 2 hours in the morning, before it gets too hot.
