LUBBOCK, Texas -- I've never seen wind before like West Texas has seen today. I'd heard stories about the sky and horizon getting a brown tint with all the dirt in the air, but before today, I'd never seen it.

It's a bit surreal.

Unfortunately, the winds are severe enough that today's practice has been canceled. But I'll be here the next day or so spending some time around the coaches and players as part of my spring tour around the league.

It's always one of the best parts of the year, and I'm sure today and tomorrow won't be any different.
