Yesterday was a brand spanking new day of spring. That's a seasonal statement not a meteorological one. Yesterday Arizona blew through on it's way to Texas.
All of the blossoms of the fruit trees and my tulip tree are now scattered all over the ground. As are my outdoor decorations and cushions on my outdoor furniture. The back porch swing swayed so much yesterday that it sounded like someone was building a new addition onto the back of the house. We're talking sustained 30 mph with gusts of 45 or better. You couldn't even see the mountains for all of Arizona in the air.
But this isn't La Nina or El Nino this just springtime in NM. I didn't take any photos, I didn't want a sand blasted lens. It did calm down around dusk and we did, "where are my cushions?" come out, come out wherever you are. The kids and the dogs played outside and all is calm........until it starts again this morning. That's the price you pay for no humidity I guess.
