Dust Bowl in Southern Colorado

doc49fe726d19bd6424469578Interesting article in the local newspaper today. The article is about how floods and droughts affected southern Colorado in the 1930’s. It all made me think of the Abuelito and his stories about growing up in Huerfano County and seeing the dust storms over head. I was skeptical of these stories–mostly because the Abuelito was a liar and a cabrón–but the pictures from Southern Colorado in the paper seem to confirm.

  1. Remember last August when Peggy and John were over and she talked about being born in Colorado during this time and how her mom had to stuff the cracks of the doors and windows so she didn’t get sick?

    You ‘member. ❤
