Blown Away

Deming, New Mexico
Dream Catcher Escapees RV Park
Site #20

The weather warning forecasts were for heavy winds, blowing dust and fire warnings. They were absolutely correct. 

It's always windy here, but nothing like today.  The winds were 42 miles per hour with gusts up to 60 mph.  It didn't take much convincing to walk over to the office and pay for another day.  
This is a view out our window, where on a normal day you could see the traffic on I 10. 

We made a quick trip to the store and came back and hunkered down.  I suggested to Bill that we could play golf as it didn't look like anyone was playing.  I got one of those looks.  

We watched truck after truck pull into the motel next door. I turned on the local stations and found out that I 10 was closed from Las Cruces to the Arizona border.  Good idea not to chance traveling today.  

Don and Sharon invited us to dinner.  Don was making his famous pork chops with caramelized onions.    

Although the cook sustained an injury to his thumb, the meal was delicious. 

It didn't matter what was happening with the weather, we still enjoyed the evening with the Del Rosario's. 

Turtle Safely........ 


  1. Another adventure that we'll remember for some time!

  2. I found your blog thank's to Sharon....a great meal is always a nice way to hunker down from the wind.

  3. Sure glad you guys stayed put. I really think you would have had the golf course to yourself. We had some wind here but nothing like you guys had.

  4. Egads....We would be pulling over with 60 mph winds also!
