The last few weeks we’ve seen thunderstorms build in the local mountains due to the monsoonal weather coming up from Baja California. While we continuously hope every single day that those thunderstorms will come over tmountains and into the valley, that never seems to happen.
Before migrating out to southern California, my grandmothers side of the family pioneered their way around the farmland of South Dakota. That wasn’t an easy life. In the photos that follow, you will see my great grandfather out on the farm as well as two of my great great grandmothers and even my great great grand uncle.
