Earth Wind and Fire



It feels like the wind 
has been blowing for weeks now!

It's really getting old...

the dust is flying,
which means my
clothes dryer is 
out of commission...

and the laundry is piling up!




taking a walk in this wind
is just hard work,
so I stick to driving...



The neighbors are combining the 
bean field next door...

keeping the windows closed
is a good idea
until the last load
goes down the road!





the whole state is on high fire alert...

harvesting beans and sunflowers
is a dangerous task this year!

this was a field fire yesterday....

fire crews were busy all day
yesterday and into the night!




Be careful,
and don't blow away!

Whew...I would not like all of that dust. No fun to have the house closed up so much. Stay safe.

confucius say "fill pockets with rocks before heading into wind."

That sure is dry and windy! I hope they get the crops all in and you get a 2 week soaker!

Sharon said...

Oh, and get your dryer fixed!

Keeping everything closed up could really be a pain when you want to enjoy the fall weather. As always your header is beautiful!

I had no idea of the danger in your corner of the globe...We are having back to back sunny days which hasn't happened since July--What is Mother Nature thinking?

Debbie said...

mother nature has been extremely cranky this year!!

Same story here, Lisa. South winds blowing a gale the last few days. Supposed to get rain this weekend. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the both of us. :)
