Discomfort Level

How things looked starting off
An influx of moisture has pushed the humidity high enough to create some discomfort during an early morning trek west of Tortugas Mountain.  Becca didn't seem all that bothered by it, but I definitely noticed the difference.  According to Doppler Dave Spielman--meteorologist at KVIA, Channel 7 in El Paso--our chances of precipitation are fairly high for later in the day.  We certainly can use the rain here in the lower desert.  I wish our temperatures were more fall-like, though; it is, after all, October.
