Springtime in El Paso means crazy windstorms that kick up tons of dirt and dust into the air. Allergies drive everyone crazy, pollen, trash, and other yucky stuff blows around, but what does it really look like when we are blanketed by all that mess.

I went up to Scenic Drive on Friday morning to take video of what El Paso looks like from above and I was surprised at how really bad the air quality can get. We always hear from weather forecasters to stay inside because of all the dirt in the air, but seeing just how thick the dust can get shows you how seriously you should take those warnings.
