It really got cold this morning. Maybe not as cold as other places, but for this area and time of year, it surprised me. When I got up it was 39 degrees and they are only predicting a high of 77 for this afternoon. The forecast is for a warmer rest of the week with lows in the 60’s and highs in the 80’s. This morning was the first time this fall that it has been in the 30’s. It almost made it yesterday but got hung up on 42 degrees. Kind of refreshing after a summer of the most days in a row over a hundred, and some were way over a hundred.
There is still no rain; lots of wind and dust. Check out Michael Ultra’s blog to get a first hand view of the big dust storm that north west Texas had the other day. I have been in a couple, one a while back when we lived up north of Fort Worth and also got into one while driving into Arizona. Luckily we were just coming up to a rest area and I pulled off and we rode it out. That was back before we had the motor-home and were pulling a travel trailer. Had time to get back and in the trailer before it hit; thought that we and the dogs would be more comfortable riding it out in the trailer. For a while, it seemed like it would upset, it was rocking so bad. But we made it through and continued on our way west. I sure hope we will get some rain soon, but none in the near forecast. I think it would have to rain 40 days and 40 night to catch up around here.
You all have a good day, you hear?
