SkyWatch: Dusty Days


This year the wind and resulting dust storms have been the absolute worst and the windy season has lasted much longer than it has since I moved here in 2007. Hospitals have been filled with people suffering from asthma or other breathing problems. Thick layers of dust have covered everything in sight. There have been no cleansing rains to wash away the dust or settle it down. Many days the skies have been a brown haze with not a patch of blue visible anywhere. On the worst days, schools were closed and many people just stayed home because visibility on the streets was so poor. On really bad days, it is not unusual to see many people wearing surgical masks over their faces.
To visit MORE friendly skies around the world, fly on over to SKYWATCH where you’ll find beautiful skies posted by bloggers all over the world.
