Kevin managed to take some pictures from his phone while sitting in his car on post. Thankfully, our houses out here are made for this kind of weather. About the only thing they are made for! We learned in February that El Paso houses are not made for the cold! lol. When we have the real windy days, everyone stays inside and limits all outdoor activities. Bre has to really watch out because those days put her asthma into full swing. When I say sandstorms, I mean the wind is so strong you can't see but a couple feel in front of you. The sand hurts and burns when it slams into your skin and you find sand in places that you never thought sand could land!
The biggest downside to it, is that it kicks Kev's PTSD into full swing. It brings the flashbacks from Iraq. They had sandstorms all the time. El Paso is the worst place to be for these guys returning from war! It really angers me that they allow them to come here after living the hell they lived over there. There are too many things in El Paso that remind our troops of being deployed! However, I will save that topic for another blog! Probably on my other site.
