A Brownout Day For West Texas

Why I Love West Texas

It was still early so you never know what a days going to be like. You know, take a picture for reference, just in case your asked.

IMG_9483You could see that tale tale sign, a cloud of dust in the distance. Blue sky above it, but sand just as high as the surrounding trees. You get to thinking now where do I want to be when that hits. The Gin for a cup of coffee doesn’t sound bad right at the present.
