Cold Front

A cold front came through today, bringing with it some pretty high winds. Since the consistency of the sand here is like talcum powder, the winds carry it pretty well—so a constant haze is over everything. Within seconds of walking outside your mouth is filled with grit, and your eyes start to burn. Pleasant. I’ve been sick recently with a head cold so that makes it all the more comfortable.

I tried to call the kiddos last night as they were opening their gifts from Santa but the lines were so clogged that I couldn’t get through after an hour of dialing. Finally got Emily at the normal time that I call her, at around 2230 at night their time.

A little over two weeks left to go. In the home stretch.
