Wind and Dust Storms

We scheduled a visit at a KOA park in Carlsbad, NM for Saturday.  So we had to make some good time going across Texas.  Jim drove 400 miles and I had the computer on my lap most of the way. 

 

We stayed at the Escapees park in Pecos, TX.

 

We made it to Carlsbad in plenty of time. The last 5 miles Jim had to wrestle with the steering wheel to counteract the wind.  We got parked and sat in the motorhome with the wind pounding us.  I heard various numbers … indluding gusts up to 60mph.  Hurricane strength is 74 – but I swear that what we felt today was like Hurricane Katrina in Fort Lauderdale.  Gee – this is the second time in the last 10 days I’ve compared current weather to a hurricane … yuk.

 

Our seminar went well, and the wind is quieting down now.  It sure is amazing how just hearing and feeling the wind can mentally and physically wear you out.
