Prescott Valley has a spring tradition. Wind! Today was one of those days as it has been windy all day.

Flags were straining at the tops of high poles and even street signs were waggling back and forth.

And when one lives in a desert environment, high winds mean clouds of dust. See if you can see this duststorm in the distance.

I tell ya - it's enough to make a person just want to . . . . . sing!

On another subject, we have another new restaurant coming to the neighborhood. It's taking over the site formerly occupied by the Apple Pan, and before that by Uncle Sal's. We'll just have to wait and see how this one works out. It's apparently related to CB's Cowboy Bistro in nearby Chino Valley so maybe that will help.

Oh, yegods! Am I getting old or what? Tombo corrected me (see comment below) and I checked it out and I was totally off my rocker on this. The restaurant in Chino Valley is actually CD's Cattle Company, formerly the Ugly Green Restaurant, and not CB's Cowboy Bistro. Sheeeeesh!!!

On all future postings on this blog, wait a day or so for the corrections before you tell anyone else. Blast!

VERY windy down here in Tucson today too!

No CBs Cowboy Bistro in Chino that I am aware of. We do have a CD's Cattle Co and Steakhouse which has been packed since it re-opened in a new location a few months ago.

Warren - I guess it's all over the state. I-40 was closed between Flagstaff and Winslow today because of high winds and low visibility.

Tombo - Blog corrected, thanks to you. Keep me honest, TC!

I am completely confused and hungry now.

I take all the blame for your confusion. Your hunger is your problem!
