Video from SW Kansas Dust Storm Deja Vu? http://hppr.org/post/dust-storm-deja-vu <p>Picture this:&nbsp; A software engineer pulls off Highway 83&nbsp; because the dirt is so thick he can't see.&nbsp; Dirt drifts that require a farmer to get the scoop out for the tractor so he can clean up.&nbsp; A layer of fine dust covers everything in the house, and people huddle in their bed and cover their heads so they can breathe.&nbsp; Scenes from a Ken Burn's documentary?&nbsp; No, it's happened seven times over the past few months right here on the high plains.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 11 Jun 2013 05:01:00 +0000 Cindee Talley 17217 at http://hppr.org Dust Storm Deja Vu? Dust Storms and Attacking Tumbleweeds http://hppr.org/post/dust-storms-and-attacking-tumbleweeds <p></p><p>Growing up, I heard story after story about the Dust Bowl from my parents and grandparents.&nbsp;&nbsp; Dad described his mother shoveling rather than sweeping post-storm drifts.&nbsp; Grandma told how she placed wet sheets over her children’s beds to protect their lungs as they slept.&nbsp; She’d launder the linens the next day because they got so dirty.
