Never Have Seen This Forecast Before

Just Moved to Arizona
Man, am I tired. I drove out of Dallas at 3:00 A.M. on Saturday to avoid traffic. I passed a gas well in Haltom City, Texas on SH-121 in Ft. Worth. I never expected to see a gas well near downtown Ft. Worth. I stopped at my sister's in Odessa, TX. I unloaded the truck Monday after driving from West Texas Sunday. I'm taking today off from unpacking.
I put 995 miles on the rental truck and had to tow my car behind it. The truck almost overheated in Arizona. Southeastern Arizona is a lot like West Texas, but there's no oil and gas, and the agriculture is limited to ranching. This region is a part of the same desert as the Trans-Pecos where I grew up, but the cactus are different. Sierra Blanca, Texas resembles Sierra Vista, Arizona in flora and microclimate. I tried to escape the Chihuahuan Desert and now I am kind of back after being gone for 31 years. If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. I sure will miss Dallas and all the lovely rain, thunderstorms, and greenery.
