    Dust Storms

    Small dust blow up on the road

    There is a fact that the 30-60 miles an hour winds wip up the dust into a frenzy. I saw this a little bit, but know it could get worse in the wrong forum. Winds in range of 30-60 MPH can make the turf stir up quickly and the dust is usually not that big, but some become real large dust storms

    July and August are part of the "monsoon" season, so there is a possiblity of HEAVY rain. And I do mean heavy. In my first three days in town it rained each day and much of it bordered on the "torrential downpour" side of things. So don't forget to bring an umbrella or rainjacket if you are coming during these times.

    The weather in Albuquerque is more unpredictable than I imagined. Even through the average temperature in January is between 28-48 degree F, when I was there a couple of days before christmas, it snowed and hovered around 15 degrees F. When I checked the forecast for the following weekend it predicted temperatures around 70 degrees. Be prepared.

    Monsoon Rains

    Arroyo Danger

    All it takes is a few minutes of rain for the arroyos to become raging rivers. It doesn't have to be raining where you are either. If you notice the picture, it's dry and not even raining. Your kids could be playing in the arroyo and suddenly be overcome by a rushing river from out of no where.

    Desert Heat!

    Albuquerque Desert

    Albuquerque is in the middle of the desert. Don't underestimate the desert heat. Many people don't realize the danger the heat poses on their bodies.
