Yesterday was truly a wonderful day. Temps soared to around 80 and it was a joy to throw open every window in the house to let the fresh air in. Even streamflow finally picked up so that there is a little more water in the river. Today on the other paw...DISGUSTING! The wind is just howling outside. There is so much dust in the air that you can feel the grit in your mouth. I had the kitchen window open, and now there is a layer of sand covering everything! Even Mesa wanted to come inside to escape the onslaught. I want to take him for his walkies, but I'm afraid I'll come back with one less layer of skin. This is truly what I hate about NM in Spring. Everything being bone dry certainly doesn't help things. Bleh!
