Dust Bowling...

So one of the things that I kind of dig about living in the desert is the occasionally funky weather we have.

This the view I have from the window next to my bed at about 4:30pm on most days:

and this was the view on Saturday at around 4:30pm:

Since I live maybe a half mile from the Franklin mountains, I normally enjoy a great view of them on one side of the house, and of El Paso on the other. On Saturday, with visibility less than half a mile, neither could be seen. That might look like fog/storm clouds, but it's actually a lot of dust. We had a fairly significant dust/wind storm and that's pretty much the way it looked all day. When the storm finally did die out, winter (such as it is) had officially arrived (and I was grumpilly huddling under blankets with no heat).

  • Meet Dargo....

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
