Although the weatherman had been warning us for several days of high winds arriving at 2 PM, we really didn't worry about that very much. We entered the library about 1 PM, and when we emerged two hours later, gasped to discover that The Hand of GOD had drawn a translucent curtain between us and the horizon line: the blowing desert sands creating a brownout. Our friend West has since explained to us that March is El Paso's worst weather. Because we're actually in a mountain pass [El Paso=the pass], spring winds funnel through that pass and can become gusts upwards of 40-50-60 MPH. This is a regular occurance in March, and it began at the end of February this year. [If you click on the photos above, you'll see what I mean for yourself.]
