Last Sunday, we had another vicious wind storm come through here. And along with the wind, came the dust! I was sitting on the back porch looking to the west. It looked like low laying fog on the meadow. The wind all of a sudden kicked in to high gear. I gathered up the dogs and cats and headed in the house. Sounded like rain hitting the house. WRONG! Dust. Lots of dust! Our home is a 50+ year old farm house. Its not sealed real tight. UGH! We did the best we could to shove towels around the doors.
There was thunder and lightning also. And just enough rain to make the dirt smeary. The reason there was so much dust here. The wheat farmers just disked up their wheat stubble! We came outta the storm with a shattered tree, and debris everywhere. The neighboring towns didn't fair so well. They had power lines down, trees thrown everywhere, power out for 2 days.
Its not that unusual to get summer storms through here, just not this severe.
This purple ash tree crashed into the other ash tree and broke limbs off of it.

My dump wagon. :)
The dust on the outside windows. I had to wash the whole house!
Tonight's sunset. Looks like fall.
Thanks for stopping by.
