We were supposed to have our first big storm of the season yesterday and today, but we didn't get any rain here yesterday, just lots of wind which stirred up all the dirt in all the empty fields and caused big dust storms here. Yeah, kind of like the dust bowl days. You could see the dirt in the air and taste it in your mouth. Everything outside was covered with a fine layer of dirt. No rain except for about five seconds of sprinkling in the morning.
The clouds in this picture were actually brown.
Last night Keith needed to go put some gas in the car so I suggested we go to the new Target that opened up last weekend and check out all the excitement. The new big super duper Target with a Starbucks inside in the new fancy schmancy Riverwalk Park section of town. The Riverwalk Park with the lake where people drown all the time.
So, our highlight of the evening was walking around the big new Target store. Whoo hoo! We didn't even buy anything because we didn't have any money. Not even enough for a Starbucks.
Other than an expanded grocery section it really wasn't much different than the Target by us so I don't think we'll ever go there again. It wouldn't make much sense to drive five miles to go to Target when there is one less than 1/2 mile away, now would it?
So, life is a little dull around here when all we have to talk about is the weather and the new Target.
