Can you believe this weather? We jump from freezing to 70’s. Everyone was talking about how bad the wind had been last week and comparing it to the sand storms that go on in West Texas, but thank goodness the wind had slowed down by the weekend. The wind kept the women’s hair flying and men pulling their hats down. The one advantage that the men have over women is that they wear pants and the wind never seems to bother them, but now days women wear jeans too.
