New Mexico was in the news 75 years ago this weekend, Black Sunday. The worst dust storm of the 1930s, the storm that created the name Dust Bowl, moved across Northeast New Mexico and eventually the continent. It was during this storm that Woody Guthrie, fearing that he might choke to death, wrote "So Long It's Been Good to Know Yuh."Just in case you hadn't noticed, comments are frequently more interesting than posts!
