Hey, what's Black
I'll tell you.
On April 14, 1935, a dense, black cloud rolled into the Southern Plains. Dirt in gusts faster than 60 MPH collided against cars & buildings. It came in through the tiniest cracks in houses.
That sounds horrible!
You think?
I even know some people that experienced it.
Their names were Ed Phillips and Ada Phillips.
They also had a 6 year old daughter. They had to
take cover in an abandoned hut. In a New Republic article, they wrote that the nightmare they saw before them is becoming part of their daily life.
Thanks for reading!!!
It's weird, in a way. Everyone was out side doing chores, having picnics when a cloud of dirt came around. Another family that experienced this event
was the Ellsaesser family. While the daughter & mother were rushing home, their car broke down and they walked 3/4 of a mile home. As daughter ran forward to get help, the wife walked off the the road , not realizing so. While the husband raced back to the house, the headlights of his truck led her back to the house. In conclusion, the storm on April 14th changed many lives.
