Oklahoma where the wind comes sweepin down the plainYeeow Aye yip aye yo ee ay written by Rogers and HammersteinMoving to Oklahoma You are going to look for a home in Oklahoma By the look on her face and the tone in her voice I knew that my friend was thinking of flat land the dust bowl and tornadoes We were thinking of green hills lakes rivers and freedom from tornadoes as had been promised of Tahleuah OK After all Tahleuah had been blessed by the Indians to never have a tornado It helps to live in a valley surrounded by hills that they call mountains And whenever I hear a tornado warning it helps to think of the blessingWell the realtors never told us about the bugs the ticks the chiggers nor the mosuitoes We learned about those on our own after moving here I got around 200 chiggers bites one year I was a mess Then we both came down with tick fever We were really sick And yet here we live in the city limits Now we just hope to never get Nile Fever I 40 No Man s Land and the Cross of JesusIn October of 2006 we drove from San Diego County through LA on the 215 to Barstow and then we got on to the I 40 freeway heading to Oklahoma Going thorugh the panhandle of Texas we only saw desolate barren land Somewhere along this route the town of Groom TX popped up They had put a VERY large cross of Jesus on a piece of their barren flat land You can see it from the freeway That was all they had to offer to the land Perhaps Jesus protects it from another Dust Bowl which I learned later had originated in the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma and had spread out somewhat to include parts Colorado New Mexico Kansas and Nebraska We pulled off the highway at Groom and drove past The Cross of Jesus and found their livestock yard We pulled into its drive way and parked Then we let our dog Mocha out of the car and we got out too and stretched our legs The ground was covered with cow pies which Mocha loved and began eating She was having so much fun but we weren t so we all got back into the car drove past The Cross again and headed east to OklahomaWe drove though Oklahoma just south of Oklahoma s own panhandle again desolation How could anyone live here Back in the pioneer days they called the Panhandle No Man s Land and it touched Kansas Texas New Mexico and Colorado Some places still are No Man s Land as far as I could tell As we continued on I 40 the flat land was green and sometimes there were small rolling hills We could live here if it weren t for the tornadoes but this time of year it was pretty Finally we made it to East Oklahoma and drove up 82 through Vian to Tahleuah I was in awe It was hilly and beautiful with lakes and rivers It is part of the Ozark Mountains so the map says Some say that it is only the foothills but when we drove through the Ozarks in later years I could not see any difference It is amazing how those living in the Ozarks can make molehills into mountainsThe Big Dust CommaThe Dust Bowl was mainly in the panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma and moved out into a circle to include parts of Colorado Texas Oklahoma Kansas and New Mexico It was only a small section of these areas but its effects were felt far and wide On a map it looks like a coma facing in the opposite direction not a bowl shape at all The Panhandles were lands that no one wanted they were the last lands to sell They were cheap And I will admit it if we could afford it we would be living in Cayucos or Morro Bay CA but only because we miss the ocean and wish we didn t live in the humidity with all of the bugs The Sacred SweetgrassThe nesters as they called the farmer s in the Great Plains areas dug up the sod the buffalo grass along with its wild flowers You can see what the prairies once looked like it you visit nature preserves that were created after the Dust Bowl ended We have been to one of those nature preserves in Nebraska and in August the flowers were still blooming along with the buffalo grass or sweetgrass as it is also called It was beautifulBut who could live in any of this prairie land where all you can see is flat land and blue skies all day and every day except when it rains and there are tornadoes or when snow is on the ground And if you are traveling as we were it would take you a few days to find any change in the terrain The pioneers had it better they saw prairie grasses and flowers but all we saw were corn and soybean fields in Nebraska and Kansas It was not inviting What is inviting is the sweetgrass because it smells so wonderland I brought a braid of it home one year when we had taken a trip east and had visited the Seminole Indian reservation I placed it on my desk and it scented the air around my desk for a few years Then one day when we were driving from Tahleuah to Tulsa on i 82 I smelled it out our car window for I had memorized the scent A rich rancher had fields of it for his cattle It filled the air with such sweetness that I later bought some from an online nursery 5 for three sprouts of grass I wanted to do our own yard in it but it would cost too much to fill a half acre which is why I guessed the rancher out on I 82 was rich Instead I planted the three grass spouts in one of my flower beds and let them grow I never trimmed them They have grown into maybe 20 clumps over the years The Indians believe that sweetgrass is sacred That is true it is It is too bad that the nesters didn t realize this for in killing the sod the sweetgrass they killed the land and themselves The land in the panhandles has never fully recovered and it never will Some of the land is still sterile Killers of the Flowers and the Sweetgrass Sod The nesters knew little of farming so they removed all of the sod to make way for crops For years those crops thrived but then a drought came and it lasted for years If they had only known to make furrows in the land so the winds could not pick up the land in sheets and deposit it elsewhere Still you needed water to grow crops and that they didn t have You also needed that sodThe first dust storms came with the drought in 1930 and lasted for 6 years When the storms grew in size and made it all the way to Washington DC even landing on the President s desk he took notice It wasn t as if they didn t know already because it was in all the news even in letters to the White House But Roosevelt finally sat up in his chair dusted off his desk and thought about helping the starving and dying farmersThe people had been choking on the dust It got into their lungs and into their stomachs Dust pneumonia is what they called it when it killed them Children were to die often before the adults Many animals that were left out during the dust storms were dead by morning When you read about it it can make you sick at heart and it can make you angry because help didn t come fast Tumbling TumbleweedsSome people even had to live on tumbleweeds because that was all that was left Some added dandelions to their meals They even salted the tumbleweeds and fed them to their cattle I can t imagine that tumbleweed tasted like anything other than well I don t know If I ever see one again I will find outI have loved tumbleweeds since my youth The Sons of the Pioneers made them famous with their song Tumbling Tumbleweeds See them tumbling downPledging their love to the groundLonely but free I ll be foundDrifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds I remember this record playing on the jutebox when I was dancing with my father at his barrestaurant in Santa Maria CA This was sometime in the early 50s I used to sing it oftenNow that I have read this book this song takes on new meaning I can t help but think that some of the survivors of the Dust Bowl didn t appreciate the song especially when tumbleweeds were all that some had left to eat And then to think that it was recorded and played on the radio back in 1934 when the Dust Bowl was taking away lives We had tumbleweeds on our land in Creston CA We used to see them along the roads too and sometimes they would take flight I didn t see them in Creston when we visited this summer or I would have brought one home to keep Instead we saw grape vineyards for our old farmhouse was gone as were our neighbor s homes All vineyards The vineyards are taking up all the water in Paso Robles and Creston Rancher s wells are going dry Their own auifer is drying up Man will never learn The Land They LovedMany left their land during the Dust Bowl moved into nearby towns or completely away from the Dust Bowl Many went to California but then Californians put up signs saying You are not welcome There is no work here Those that left were the lucky ones unless their lungs gave out on them in later years But some didn t want to leave their land even when their children were dying They loved it that muchThey taped wet sheets over their doors and windows They filled cracks with rags but the dust blew in and when storms came and went they shoveled the dust out their doors They wore masks when they were outdoors but they had to change them every hour Next their houses filled up with bugs that also wanted shelter Some who left the land died on the way out when a dust storm came and buried them and their cars No wonder some didn t leave it could mean their death but the love of land can keep you in place also Still who could love this land now Dreams die hard The top soil moved on faster than the people could leave Somewhere maybe it left a gold mine of top soil and if it had blown West I would say that it blew into Fresno CA where the fertile land literally feels like flour Loam My herbs that I moved from Creston to Fresno grew larger and faster than they ever had in Creston It was dream soil But even Fresno was dying because they built homes and the town over the rich loam taking away crop land The Hero Who Saved Us AllRoosevelt took action in 1936 by sending a soil conservationist to the Dust Bowl to teach people about furrowing Then he planted millions of trees that were not appreciated by some farmers who dug them up Most of the trees died during the droughts over the years but there are a few left to this day Only a few The idea was to stop the winds from tearing up land I suppose the trees were to be a wind break So Roosevelt became their hero He sent them money to buy food and pay for their mortgages He had many big ideas that I loved Only now our government is trying to take it all away Just wait and see At the end of the 30s the nesters began finding water lots of water for they had dug down to the Ogallala Auifer that stretches out over the Midwest It now feeds the American people with the crops that they have planted The Midwest is now the Wheat Corn and Soybean Belt of America In 50 years the auifer will be dry and in some areas the water has already dried up And now fracking is taking up the water polluting the land and causing earthuakes What will they do then What will we all do Unicorns
