One afternoon, the clouds were looming but they turned pink. This time it was not rain but wind and a significant dust storm. Even traffic on I-70 seemed to stop until the storm passed. The picture I took was later in the storm at a time when the winds began to slacken and does not indicate just how poor visibility became
For the first few days in Colorado, we frequently saw storm clouds, and because the weather was cooler than normal, the harvesting was delayed. That gave us time to do some sightseeing. Then the weather cleared, and Don was back to harvesting. His days here are not as long, or as frantic as earlier. However, the crews can be an hour away so they leave early and return late. Don is into the rhythm of the work now so does not mind it and I am making a lot of progress on some of my projects - this blog being one that takes a fair amount of time! I am not going to the fields as often as I've had a couple of allergy flair-ups following windy, dusty evenings in the fields. The wheat dust may be the culprit and in a field of stubble it is hard to avoid.
