I just got off the phone with my sister in Tularosa, NM. They are fine. They say if wasn't a tornado that hit the village, it was darn close. Her fruit trees are ruined, the new fiberglass roof on the greenhouse got demolished by golf ball size hail. She says every mobile home in the area suffered some damage - windows blown out, skirting ripped away, etc. Numerous trees are down and they were without electrical power until 5 this morning. If I was a nice guy I'd go help them clean up, but Chris let me off the hook and told me to go enjoy my trip north.
Don says he's selling the house and moving to Seattle. Yeah, right.
