Wind started picjing up today around 1 pm and dust was flying every where and also was a little hard to drive in it. and tonight as I set here in puter room I can hear it howling like a cold noth wind and I can hear it tossing every thing ariound outside that isnt tied down . Gust right now are 55 miles and hour and the temp is dropping pretty fast was in the high 70s today now its droped to like 50 in just a few hours and our tomorrow high sounds like it will get no warmer than 55 degrees. So the warm weather didnt last but a very few days. BUt I sure enjoyed it while it was here. even got a little tanning in a couple of day. So thats a head start on spring!

Wow lucky you - apart from the sand storms that is! We have been having winds of up to 80 mph lately and I won't even talk about the low temps! I think the only tanning we would get was wind burn and frost bite! lol xxx

Wow, we're a few hundred miles from you but the winds picked up here about the same time. Strange. By the time I picked up my son from school (around 5:30pm) it was getting a little chilly. Temperatures were in the high 70's and might drop now. I like the cold weather though. A night with the fireplace is always cozy.
