I Don't See The Desert From Here!

Location: Deming, NM

Deming NM, in the desert. Really.

A huge storm system is blowing through southern New Mexico and Texas, and last night it dropped lot of rain here at Dream Catchers Escapee Park in Deming. Deming is in the desert -- I've previously experienced several huge dust storms here, dust storms so bad that the world turned orange and the wind kept everyone tightly shut inside lest the sand grains find their way into nostrils, ears, and any other exposed orifices or crevices. But now the lot is a mini-lake. At least there is no mud -- the surface is gravel and not dirt so the heavy rigs don't need to worry about being pulled out.

Maybe January showers will bring February flowers?
