In the Clamoring, Tossing, and Swaying Wind —- Thursday, April 16, 2020

Off we went down the next mile to load and haul dirt

When all that HUGE amount of trash came roaring down the canal, into our headgate and then onto the farm

The water washed away all the dirt along the cement ditch

We loaded and hauled dirt for two full days…

With several more days of loading and hauling to go.

Although the day was clear, the sky blue and the sun rippling between clouds; we had wind.

Look closely and you can see dirt dancing on the crisp bright air

Two full days, more days to go

Then water to set (which occurs several times a day)

The end of the day—finally.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Linda

  1. What a big mess that trash caused! I’m sure there is quite a bit of shoveling involved, too, to get the dirt in place! The farmers are getting ready to plant corn here after this cold front moves through.

    Take care…Blessings!
