High Wind Advisory and Warnings

April 28-29, 2010

We stayed at home the last couple of days except for a short excursion into Alamogordo for ice cream. We have sort of been prisoners to the weather. We've experienced a very strong wind storm over the last couple of days with steady winds at 30-45 and gusts from 50-60 mph. Yesterday we were under a High Wind Advisory. 

It has been so dusty that we can't see the mountains and visibility in general is limited. Dust seems to get everywhere and on everything. Today the weather service issued a High Wind Warning until 9 p.m. A High Wind Warning is a warning for sustained surface winds greater than 40 mph/64 kph lasting more than an hour or winds over 58 mph/93 kph over land that are either predicted or occurring for an unspecified period of time.

Our dusty view out the back window. Before the wind storm we could see the Sacramento Mountains and Sierra Blanca.

I worked on updating our Campground Review page and Our Rig and Upgrades page and returned some e-mails.  Maggie and Rico chilled inside with us.

We plan to move on to Silver City, NM a small town north of Deming NM. Of course that will depend on the weather! We are hoping to watch a portion of the Tour of the Gila. Lance Armstrong is participating in the race once again this year. If we like the area, we will plan on staying for a month.
