Dust Bowl farmers reseeding sod land - Kansas Memory
Lisa Langley's insight:
Annotation: After the dust bowls, farmers had started to reseed the lands with pastures of grass, that way the ground and the dry lands will stay down if a dust storm was to ever come or hit the towns again. The Grant country sold conservation distric board had purchased seeding for the grasses to adapt into the southwest Kansas climatic conditions.
My Thoughts/Opinions: I think this is a very good idea for during the dry seasons, that way if a dust storm was to hit again, there wouldnt be as much dust flying around for days, instead they'd have grass lands to cover up all the acers.
Couple lost in dust, wander thruout night - Kansas Memory
Lisa Langley's insight:
Annotation: The Modlins couple had gotton lost during a dust storm, forcing their car off the road, as the couple went out to look for help, they got lost inside a corn field, leaving Mrs. Modlin cuts and injusry's to her eyes due to all the dust that was flying around during the dust storm.
My Opinion: when i read this, i thought man this is crazy, how the wind could blow so hard, enough to make a car go off the road, i proably wouldnt know what to do either, to either stay in the car, and get coverd up by the dust storms, or to go out and try to look for help. It'd be a life and death situation, because who know's where your going to end up after the dust storm.
Annotation: Corrine Weeden and her half brother Leland Fox had left the house to look for some arrowheads. On their way back home, the dust storm had started, although they stayed together thourghout the night, keeping eachother safe, luckly they were found by Dawn, two miles west and one-half mile north of their home. Leland had left to find help, telling his sister to stay put until he came back. He had found his way home, while the search team and the sheriff had gone out to look for them, his sister was found by the sheriff of the county, so luckly the both of them were found safetly.
My Thoughts/Opinions: I thought it was good that they stayed together thourghout the night of the dust storm, I also thought it was risky that Leland had left his sister to go find help, but knowing that, that'd proably be the only way finding helpand finding their way back home.
THE DUST BOWL chronicles the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, in which the frenzied wheat boom of the 'Great Plow-Up,' followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation.
