Happy New Year to all!
We have had real winter this year in the high desert. And rain! We got almost 1/2" of rain on New Year's Eve. The mountains have a scrim of snow up high.
Today the wind is blowing. Actually it has been blowing since last night. That's helpful in that it dries up puddles. But oh, the incessant sound. Our anemometer measured peak gust of 24 MPH, average wind speed for the day 19.
The combination of moisture and wind has given us a marvelous display of wind clouds. Enjoy the pictures.
