After five days of almost no let up in the wind I think everyone in New Mexico is about to go crazy. Makes you wonder how many crimes are caused by the wind. Our wind has really been nasty. About 30 to 40 miles per hour with gusts up to 70 miles per hour. You can't go outside without geting sand in eyes, nose, ears, mouth, hair clothes, ect. Can't do anything outside unless it is have to like feeding and watering horses. When I change the horse water it is full of sand again in minutes. And the dumb things stand out in the wind and blowing sand instead of going into their shelters.
The weather man says it will let up this week but I won't beleive it until it happens. Just saw the neighbors tarp he had on hay go flying to land on another neighbors car. So far the roofs are staying on but I hear there are seveal trees down and tall signs over buildings have come down.
Even worse there is no moisture at all which is making a high fire danger. There was a fire at Hobbs New Mexico past few days that burned 8 homes that I heard of. Please be careful doing anything outside. No more fires and no one getting hurt.
