Windy season is typically is at its worst in March and April, but it can rear its ugly head in The Borderland at just about any month. When the winds get cranking here in El Paso, they scream. And if we haven't seen much rain before a windy day, El Paso turns into a brown, dusty apocalypse.
The National Weather Service of El Paso recently tweeted out warning people in the borderland that Wednesday will be “CRAZY in the Borderland…. With VERY strong winds, blowing dust, mountain snow, lowland rain.”
CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!! And apparently Mother Nature got the memo and decided to grace the borderland with winter-like weather a day AFTER the official start of the Winter season (December 21st) but hey, it’s just in time for Christmas so we will take it.
Tired of those nasty, dusty El Paso winds? We'll take that over what we're about to show you from Oklahoma City's KOCO-TV. A series of nasty twisters have hit the heart of America's "Tornado Alley", including one the KOCO helicopter caught demolishing this tractor trailer. (And who's FLYING A HELICOPTER in the middle of a THUNDERSTORM?!)
We may complain about the ugly winds in El Paso, but we are very blessed with the weather we have. I am amazed at how calm the guy in this video is, considering the destruction taking place. So what's a little wind?
