Thanks everyone for your kind words. I actually like the desert environment a lot..so I'm not used to all the green around here.. but it is really nice to have it like this once in a while for me.

I was in EP last week and flying in you could see the desert had a green "fuzz" type of turff over it.

You may get your wish. I was reading a report that said El Paso's Climate is changing to a more humid San Antonio like climate and less of a desert dry climate we have had for many years now.
