Sand Storm!

Looks Fierce

About 6:30 pm MST, we spotted a line of strong storms approaching from the east — very unusual as most storms go west to east.

Anyway, we were looking forward some thunder, lightning, and so on. No such luck. Turned out to be strong winds blowing sand around and a haboob south of us. Cough, cough. Holy Dustbowl, Batman.



Previously that afternoon . . .

Our 19-gallon water heater leaked itself to death. Luckily we were in our park model when the leaking started. Plumbers are coming out tomorrow afternoon. Do I hear $500? We’ll see.

Well, it is 16 years old

    Whoa Nellie.. that’s some wind! Are you enjoying your new weather system? Looks pretty cool – even when it’s blowin’ in the wind.
