Re: Anyone watch Dust Bowl on PBS?

Wow. that is amazing. I remember a couple of years growing up when the hoppers were really bad by our definition then, but that was nothing compared to these kinds of stories. Again, I can hardly even fathom hoppers like that.


i remember my granddad talking about when they had to shoot a bunch of the local guys' cattle, but unlike the story in the movie last night, they didn't have a ditch or ravine to bury them in, so they just burned the carcasses. Can you imagine that? I darn sure can't. 


I can't wait to watch this thing again tonight. great stories, everybody. Makes me thankful to come from folks tough enough to make it through all this!
