Dirt Storm 2012

We are getting a sense of what the people went through during the dirty 30's...by no means a TOTAL example...we are just on day 2...and it is quite enough for me!
I am wondering what is happening to the wheat seed that was planted.
Since it hasn't rained, that hasn't sprouted.
So is the seed just blowing up and out??

I don't know if you can see the dirt rolling out of the field...might be too bright...here..
but, in the trees...? can you see it...

It is blowing so hard it is pushing the car along with the brake ON!

Coming into town...this is the street i turn down to get to my store...


and here behind the store...


the dirt  is just hanging in the air...it is terrible for the eyes and nose and mouth...

It IS beginning to sprinkle so I hope we get a good cleansing rain and that will also aid in the beginning set to the crop!

This is a totally different kind of experience for sure!

thanks for coming by!

It's been very, very windy here, too, but since I live in the city, I don't see that much dust (except on my furniture when I open a door). Sorry to read how bad it's been there. Hope you got your rain. We sure did!
