Photo of the Day......Cattle seek shelter from the blistering hea and dryness

It has been 80 years since the Great Plains drought of 1931 to 38 that resulted in the great migration.  Today this same land is experiencing a drought of equal severity. However there is no Farmstead Act and the Prairies never recovered from the the Dust Bowl SO there are far fewer people living here today.  

Cattle take shelter from the overwhelming heat and dryness under a tree stand on a long abandoned farm house near Guymon, Oklahoma.  This appears to have been the home of a very successful farmer at one time.
