Yes, the area is "desert" during some winters, but during the
summer the whole area becomes grass lands and very green for the Blip Southwest.
The "Monsoon" comes from the Gulf of Mexico and is unique to
North America. This makes this area a very mild desert. With good winter
rains, the area is shades of green for about 8 months of the year. We
