We made a Skype phone call to Helen's Mum as it was her birthday (Happy Birthday!).
We had dinner at Applebee's this evening, just for a change! I had the sizzling fajitas - yummy!
Just now as I write this the southerly wind (return flow, as it's known) is howling around the building. A bit noisy but it always carries with it the thought of storms, as it is returning moisture northwards.
Tomorrow looks like a chance of storms across parts of the High Plains - we'll have a look in the morning. The longer range indications into next week seem to increase the risk of severe storms in the central USA as a powerful jet and trough move in from the west - too early to pinpoint days and locations but the overall pattern looks rather active for a time.
Here's this evening's sunset, as viewed from outside the motel.
