Army of Mom

I took shots at the soccer field, but that orange one downtown speaks volumes. We thought the exact same thing about it feeling and looking like Midland. Only it smelled better here. :)


My friend and I were just talking about a sand storm she got stuck in in Southern CA. I've never been in a dust/sand storm...looks kinda pretty though...without the whole lung aspect ;-)


I think I'd rather have that than freezing fog which is what we've had for the last few days.

Color is pretty, but it looks like hell to breathe in.

Take care, Uzz. :)


We've got a weird freezing rain, not quite sleet.
The roads are hazardous because the ground is frozen, so the water and melting snow are standing puddles.
A report in this morning's paper quoted a guy from the Rescue Squad saying they have had 5 accidents along the same one and a half mile stretch of the 4 lane state highway.

We haven't had a dust storm like that since the drought in the Summer of 1988.
I remember the fine film of gray on the inside window sills, even though I had closed the glass.
Your orange is a new color to me, tho.

Army of Mom

We have a lot of red dirt here in this part of Texas and in West Texas. They call it red clay. That causes the weird orange color. One news account I read said that the dust storm started in Lubbock and just blew all the way out here. And, Lubbock is somewhere around 300-400 miles west of us!!!


My Boyfriend was complaining about it too. He sent me some pics. Maybe I'll forward them on to you.

  • Original Soundtrack - Falling Slowly

    Falling Slowly
    Original Soundtrack: Once

    You may have seen Glen Hansard And Marketa Irglova play this song live during the Oscar' well as her beautiful speech. Maybe the most beautiful love song I have heard in the past 10 years.

  • Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - Killing The Blues

    Killing The Blues
    Robert Plant & Alison Krauss: Raising Sand

    I have had this CD, but had not listened to it...until I heard this song used in a weird as it sounds, they have a great chemistry!

  • Sara Bareilles - Love Song

    Love Song
    Sara Bareilles: Little Voice

    Yet ANOTHER song I discovered through a commercial! Her voice is impressive and the vibe of the whole CD makes it worth taking a shot on.

  • Vampire Weekend - Oxford Comma

    Oxford Comma
    Vampire Weekend: Vampire Weekend

    The new critics darlings are definitely an acquired taste, but the lyrics are highly literate, the songs are smart and the arrangements are delightfully quirky! Vampire Weekend certainly deserves the hype!

  • Yael Naïm - New Soul

    New Soul
    Yael Naïm: Yael Naim

    Another song I discovered from a commercial! This is that jaunty little number you hear in the new MacBook Air can't help but smile:-)
