I love these images of our cows and a pig.
The wind is still blowing and we are all caked in dust – though I am sure this is absolutely nothing compared to the dust bowl, it feels like a mini one.
The blowing dust reminds me of these words. Such a terrible time.
And then the dispossessed were drawn west — from Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico; from Nevada and Arkansas, families, tribes, dusted out, tractored out. Car-loads, caravans, homeless and hungry; twenty thousand and fifty thousand and a hundred thousand and two hundred thousand. They streamed over the mountains, hungry and restless — restless as ants, scurrying to find work to do — to lift, to push, to pull, to pick, to cut — anything, any burden to bear, for food. The kids are hungry. We got no place to live. Like ants scurrying for work, for food, and most of all for land.
— John Steinbeck. The Grapes of Wrath, 1939
Lets plant more trees to stop another dust bowl. It is important to know how lucky we really are.
