The Winds of EL Paso

The winds of El Paso have welcomed us back with a vengence!!! Monday they were at 40 mph sustained with 60-70 mpg gusts, poor Sheryl about gets blown over when she goes out in those....lol. As you can see above the winds are actually bending the flag pole.


Along with the strong winds comes the desert sand and dust. You can just make out downtown El Paso from the overlook. Usually you can see all the way to the horizon in Mexico. We really didn't want to be out in it, however Sheryl had her first doctors appointment. Speaking of which, her doctor is scheduling her for an MRI next week, once he gets the results we can then come up with a plan to fix her back. Poor girl is just in an incredable amount of pain and is tired of living on pain meds. Shes been a trooper for so long, but has just had enough. Good thing is, we are here and the wheels are in motion. Haven't been doing much else, Saturday I did go out with a few friends, old and new, exploring the desert area just to the west, however I'll save that for another post. Actually I'm waiting for some pics of the trip, since I boneheaded it and forgot my camera.
 Thats all the news thats fit to print, so we'll see you back here in a day or two......................

Hope all goes well for Sheryl with the MRI, when I had mine done it freaked me out being crammed in the round tunnel of the MRI machine.

Of course, with all the wind you're having, it'll blow her through in no time. ;c)
