Blasting Wind — Abandoned Lands

APRIL 4 2008

This abandoned farmstead stands in ruin from blasting winds which
have shifted topsoil from field to cover the house and improvement.
The old turning plow in foreground was left at the end of row in the field.

Date: 1935

    Wow – it’s like a flood – only not with water. It’s very eerie in the black and white also.

    Interesting way of putting it. For many, the dust storms of the 30s were as devastating as any flood.
