Sometimes we get Hail Storms.
And Heavy Scary Thunder and Lightning Storms.
I mean VERY SCARY STUFF!
Like OVER-THE-TOP Scary!
In Early Summer we get Dust storms…these are caused by—you got it—WIND.
Wind coming off the Uncompahgre Plateau across and through the canyons, right up onto the Mesa we call home.
Then all the worked-up ground becomes DUST and blows right into our eyes, ears, and mouths.
Sure, is a Mess.
If it’s late summer heading into Fall—when the air cools way down and the Earth is still warm…then the canals and water ditches and the river makes FOG!
Mom loves Fog…I told you she was a little strange. Off she goes to go WALKING in the FOG!
Dad and I just let her.
