It's 37 degrees outside, with a steady 28 mph wind and gusts to 45 mph. So sez the Weather Channel. The northwest horizon is dirty tan, and this is gonna keep up all day. (sigh) I'll be doing some serious cleaning this evening or tomorrow!
Did you know you can see our dust storms from space? The photo below (click to enlarge) is of a particularly nasty storm I was caught in two years ago. Portales is just below the white band of clouds, just west of the Texas - New Mexico state line. I got the pic here.
