Our day started out like this in southeastern New Mexico.

 It didn't take long to become this!

 Watch out for the blowing dust & tumbleweeds.


Nothing like a little "New Mexico Rain" streaking across the road.


The "Welcome To The Trinity Hotel In Carlsbad, NM" Billboard
was blown down at mile marker #53, in Seven Rivers, NM. Power
lines were reported to have been blown down all across Eddy Co. 

Dee Williams Operational Director at the Eddy County Regional 
Emergency Dispatch Authority (REDA) in Artesia posted this
on my FaceBook Timeline this morning-

"
"Well, it was a wild ride yesterday Wendell. We had poles snapped in half, lines on the ground, car accidents, vehicles damaged by flying debris and trees uprooted and thrown down in the streets."

Yesterday's "NASA MODIS" Satellite Images-

Blowing dust is streaking northeastward across southern and
