Dust in the Wind


Even with our recent light rains, this farmer stirs up a cloud of dust while out working in his field.

Which just goes to show that we haven't had nearly enough summer rain.

Great quote.

What a great quote! Sad but true. Boy, I wouldn't want to be a farmer in Arizona.

The field is very close to the new looking subdivision. Lots of dust there. I guess we have had a lot more rain up here in the high country. We have mud.

The quote is just too funny!

This past weekend when I was driving back from Western France, I saw the same kind of clouds behind the same kind of tractor. Funny that, because it had rained quite a bit!

But it makes for a good picture opportunity! Today it rained all afternoon! That's a first in I can't even tell you how long!

Oh, does that cloud of dust remind «Louis» of his childhood in the Texas panhandle...
