Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore

Technically, Midland is not the desert. We receive around 15” of rain each year. A little to the west of here is the desert. Out there they receive less than ten inches each year, if that. The problem for West Texas is that most of the rain comes in a few storms that happen during the spring and fall.
This year Eddy County, New Mexico started off storm season with a severe thunderstorm which beat the town of Carlsbad with 2” hail and then tried real hard to blow the town away with 60 mile per hour winds.
