Default southern wind

If anyone has to drive down south today, Im south of Brooks and visibility is very low with a whole lotta blowing dirt. Tried to head to the lake but the wind was starting to tip my truck so I figured a tent might not be the best idea today

Pretty windy at my place too right now. And I just had shingles repaired yesterday from the last wind storm! I canít believe I left the Pincher area only to pick the windiest spot in southeast Alberta.

Where do you look for those? Just wander around any random prairie and hope for the best?

Look for erosion on farm land. You won't find them on the prairie.

Ground squirrels are up around the Medicine Hat area!

And you know what that means? Snakes! One more month. I cannot wait.
