The Santa Fe New Mexican reports residents on Red Rock Road on the rugged western edge of Santa Fe County have been unable to leave their driveways because the road has up to 4 feet (1.2 meters) of snow in some places.

Some residents say they feel resentful that they haven't been able to count on the county government to plow them out.

Santa Fe County officials say they're doing what they can to help residents, prioritizing getting emergency services to residents who need urgent medical care.

County emergency manager Martin Vigil says the county has reached out to Public Service Co. of New Mexico about possibly using the company's snowcat.
