Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

All we are is dust in the wind

Soccer Saturdays are back for the family and we'll toss some baseball into the mix starting next week, but I don't think anything prepared us for the windy weather that we had today. Plain and simple: it was gross. It looked more like West Texas than North Texas with the dust blowing in the wind. If you didn't know better, you might think it was fog, but it was dirt. I didn't take my camera out in the dusty air, but shot these pics from my car as I was leaving to take Little Bit to a birthday party. The first shot shows the players waiting for a throw in. The second shows Coach Army of Dad trying to hear one of his players over the wind.
Uzz saw it in Fort Worth, too, and documented it on his blog, too. It just looked like the dirt storms we grew accustomed to in Midland. Not something you see every day in North Texas.

    Nope, not cold - about 60. Just gross because of the dirt in the air. It just hurt your eyes. But, it was sad for the boys playing in it. There were giant drum-trash cans (like you see the bums burning trash in to stay warm in old movies) blowing over and around the soccer fields. A stroller went end over end onto the field at one point (thankfully the baby wasn't in it!) and at one point, I put Little Bit in my chair and it blew over with her in it!!!

    I was out in it, tried working in the yard. ICK
    Kept getting tossed around is the only reason I stayed out.. made me feel lighter - heh
    But I could not see clearly until this morning, and my head is still stuffy.
    Fires must have stated from power lines down further south or something - smelled a whole lotta smoke too
