|Dust Storm in Oklahoma|
Possibly in Hooker, Oklahoma
|Dust Storm in Kansas|
Probably in or near Hugoton, Kansas
As one who enjoys his daily shower, I can't imagine having to live through one of these storms. The fine dust made it inside the houses and covered everything. The dust coated people's bodies but because of the drought, showers were not a daily affair.
If you missed the PBS Ken Burns Documentary, you ought to watch it. It is available on DVD.
Lewis Joseph "Jake" Kilbourne and Clara Bell Kilbourne (Jayme's great-grandparents) homesteaded land in Stevens County, Kansas but later moved into Hugoton. Henry Claydean McBee and Ella Mae Tarr McBee (also Jayme's great-grandparents) lived in Hooker, Oklahoma. Both Hugoton, Kansas and Hooker, Oklahoma felt the full force of these dust storms.
