A slight dusting...

On the left is a photo from the Dust Bowl days around here. And on the right is what my neck of the woods looked like late afternoon yesterday (paired photos from kcbd.com).

That's a whole bunch of drought-scorched cotton fields in the air, pushed by a cold front with wind gusts up to 75 mph. It swarmed in like the plagues of Egypt, turning the daylight a dark, rusty brown at 5:30 p.m.

"Brown Monday," indeed.
