Amarillo Weather

This yellow sky was bright blue earlier in the afternoon.  Then the dust storm started.


Soccer practice was cancelled because of the dust storm.  I have never experienced anything like it before.


The wind was blowing around 50 mph steadily, with gusts up to 65 mph, if I remember correctly. It was absolutely howling. And the dust was creeping in through all sorts of cracks into the house. Under the windows and doors, and even under the floorboard in the living room.

Don't worry,  we are having the apartment weatherproofed.

Also, since Amarillo is windier than Chicago, which is the windiest city I have ever been in before this, the kids and I are going shopping tomorrow for North Face wind gear.
