Wicked Wind


A wicked wind causes a severe hardship and havoc during the dirty thirties to ordinary hard-working Americans trying desperately to survive.

The video shows the 1930’s rancher and family members caught up in a severe dust storm caused by high winds whose sand/dust covers all.

Meanwhile, elsewhere this same wind rustles forest tree leaves  and then causes the collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge killing an extremely frightened dog trapped in a car on this bridge.

Everyday, wind does good and bad somewhere on this globe however, when it does bad some families get caught up in extreme hardship because of the damage done to their lives.

My video mashup depicts the 1930s, the “dirty thirties”, when wind proved to be an enemy to poor ordinary people, Americans, trying to survive anyway they could.
