A week of extremes

Posted by Russel Higgins -

It is not normal for my drive home to be this exciting. Wind gusts reaching 45 mph on Thursday evening relentlessly moved Northern Illinois precious topsoil. Momentary visibility was greatly reduced, I stopped to take this picture just west of Newark. Hopefully the moisture we are supposed to get over the weekend and future crop growth that will provide more ground cover that will make this an isolated event in 2012.
