Here in the desert of Southern New Mexico, spring is synonomous with wind. It's the worst time of year for wind with wind speeds of 45-50 mph the norm and gusts up to 70 mph. Dust storms are common out here in the desert. The wind has started up this week, so it must be spring. Anyway, this photo is from 1936, the Texas dustbowl, but it fits my current week fairly well.
