We worked in a big garden near the creek.
There were two water tanks and a
windmill next to the garden.
We had to work very hard in the hot sun.
One day, in the vet season, the people
working in the garden saw a storm,
with a big wind, coming in from the south.
There was something
inside that storm!
The old men saw it coming across the creek.
