So . . . um . . . the wind is blowing. We've had sustained winds at 45 MPH all day and frequent gusts as high as 65 MPH. As I've said before, these winds combined with miles and miles of empty cotton fields make the dirt blow. This picture was taken at about 4:15 this afternoon. Don't try to adjust your screen. The sun really is shining. The haze on the picture is just the dust in the air. This is the very reason why I don't dust in the months of February, March, or April. Happy Spring!
