    No joke, we are under an advisory for blowing dust. Part of I-35 is closed due to thick dust clouds. The wind has been crazy all day, probably 35-40 mph with gusts over 50 for sure. I hope I don't get blown away! Or buried under piles and piles of clay dirt. Ahhh, Oklahoma.

    Get ready, Manda! It looks like a blizzard around here and it is all dirt!

    EEEWWWWW! I am so glad we put in the new windows to minimize the dust that gets into the house, but I will probably have to Windex and Pledge the heck out of all the surfaces when this is over!

          The wind is finally going down here. There were some fires down by I-80. I can't even imagine fighting fires in that wind! The guys were working cattle out in it. They looked so beat up when they came in for dinner!

            *laughing* you're right Vicky, we get a lot of wind here too! It's pretty scary when fire is added to the mix! Hope they were able to get everything under control Cheryl.

              Oh that does not sound like fun. I remember one time when my dh and I were in Las Vegas and we came out of our hotel one moing and there was a sand storm blowing. You could barely make out the hotels across the street and boy that sand got in every where – yuck!

                My daughter still laughs like crazy every time she remembers when I came home traumatized after being caught in one of those little dust whirlwinds that you see crossing the road. I had dust in my hair, and my teeth, and up my nose… And the heartless child thought it was hilarious. !sad. I was surprised at the strength that little one minute storm had!

                  Blowing dirt is never fun.
                  But Cheryl and Manda were having a windstorm that was preceded by months of drought.

                  I'm glad it's over for you two. How long did it last?

                  We had high winds with strong gusts for two days. Some gusts were 60 to 70 mph yesterday. Part of I-80 was closed do to the wind, low visibility and some wrecks. There were some fires in that area also! I read this moing that one fire bued 10,000 acres and destroyed 3 houses. The dirt blowing around looked like a blizzard at times. We had a lot of dirt move around! I am still looking for flower pots and my grill cover! LOL! Last night when the sun went down, so did the wind and today is a gorgeous fall day!

                  It is still windy like a mutha, but they did re-open I-35 after a huge wreck because of dust…..now I have to drive all the way to OKC today. Yuck!

                  AND I bued a HOLE in my favorite skirt! ARRGGHH!

                  #184512

                  Have a safe trip, Manda! I hate driving in the wind!

                  Man! A hole in your favorite skirt! How did you do that?
