Oh, yes! Our fair city played an April Fool's Day prank on us, turning what started out as a nice spring day into an ugly sandstorm! This is what it looked like as I drove home today, around 1:00. The wind was buffeting my car so hard that it was difficult to drive a straight line. The camera is aimed out the passenger-side window, looking toward the Sandias, but the mountain was completely hidden from sight.
Those strange looking trees over there are what's left after the 2003 fire that swept through the Bosque. Some of the dead trunks have been carved into beautiful animals and birds. (You might remember some of pictures I posted earlier of those carvings - right HERE.)
It's now past 7:30 in the evening and the wind seems to have died down at last.
