Mother Nature has determined that my little plot of land in southern Arizona needs to moved into Colorado...immediately.

So she is putting on a wind show that lifts up the area dust mote by dust mote and frantically rushes it in a northeasterly direction. And with winds registering up to 65 mph, walking is difficult and driving dangerous since other vehicles swerve randomly into oncoming traffic. Wind-chill is a factor even when the temperature is in the mid 80's.

The horses stand together, tails towards the wind. Birds clutch unto tree limbs, with only the strongest hawks patrolling the skies. The greyhound insists on her regular outside walks... until she gets out the front door, when she tucks tail and demands to go back inside.

Wonderful excuse to stay inside and watch old movies, right?
