Out here there's the sky...West Texas

Other people faced long security lines during the weekend of heavy traffic. Not me, near Dickens, Texas, Republic of.

Memorial Day weekend trip to see my brother...the wide open spaces of West Texas...even when it's flat, it's not boring. "Out here there's the sky," Willa Cather.
We had thunderstorms, a cold front and Haboob sand storm, and more thunderheads. Love it.
