The Dust Bowl

My recent fascination with prairie dresses got me thinking about the dust bowl. My family is from the Red River Valley and most of them still live there. My parents say that when they were kids, they could see the curve of the earth from their homes, which is no longer the case. The farmers planted shelter belts. I can see the curve of the earth from where I live in Washington, but it is because of the bay.
