I thought I was living in New Mexico, but it seems that I might be in Chicago! This wind just doesn't stop! Today it has blown like crazy all day long. They just said on the news that this are is having sustained winds of 45 MPH. Did you get that? SUSTAINED at 45! Wind gusts are up to 66! That is "tropical storm" level wind. I've talked with a number of people who have lived here for some time, and while we all know that winds can be bad in New Mexico, the "old timers" say that this is unusually strong and is lasting over a longer period of time than they can remember.
Oh, good grief. They just said (on TV) the winds could be even worse overnight, gusting upward of 70 is possible. This is just insane!
I live on the lea ward side of the mountain, so you'd think this should be more protected. I guess I'm close enough to the top of this hill that it comes down the higher hills behind min own, and then it swoops over the top of my hill and right down on me. sighhhh.
Oh, yeah! And we are probably going to get some snow tomorrow!!
I'm going to sleep.
