The last three weeks my car has been covered in pine tree sap. The original owner of the house had planted a row of desert pines on the outside of the driveway and a couple more on the other side near the house.
Fire danger is expected to be extra high today, Wednesday, so National Weather Service Meteorologists and firefighters are urging the public to be careful, especially for people operating gas or electrical powered machinery outside.
I was thinking my yard could use a little sprucing up. Maybe it just appears dreary because we are at the end of our winter season. We have some cold days and nights, but overall our cold season has been a mild one here.
The temperatures are warming up this week and it got me thinking about the spring allergy season. The desert plants start to grow and release their pollen and really affect those of us with spring allergies.
Ok so I lied. There really aren't many tornadoes in the region.
In fact, El Paso, Texas is in a very low risk area.
The largest tornado in the El Paso area was an F1 in 1959 that caused 0 injuries and 0 deaths.
