Today’s weather report: Dust

We are having a sand storm this morning. The sky is brown with all the dust up in the sky. My phone says visibility is only 1,323 YARDS! Expecting wind gusts to 60 mph, too.

This photo is looking out our back door toward the lake, with the barely seen houses on the other side.

I’m not real sure what this prompt is supposed to be about … flirty phrases, or coffee, or tea, or me?

I did read a book years ago called, “Coffee, Tea, or Me”, and it was pretty funny. If I remember, it was about airline stewardesses and finding dates? Whatever, it was funny, and now I don’t know if it was fiction or true.

Flirty phrases – I never used any, and I never had anyone say any to me that I know of. I don’t really like such things anyway. I’d have to go googling some if I wanted to know any, but I don’t want to know any.

I do like coffee and I do like tea – hot coffee and cold tea. Some people switch it up and have cold coffee drinks, and hot tea. That’s fine if they like it.

What I wanted to talk about is that plume of Sahara desert dust that is spreading around the past few days. Have you heard of it?

It’s slowly covering some southern states, including TX. I have noticed a haze in the sky lately. Not a brown haze, though. They say where we are won’t be but mildly noticeable. Still, it’s strange.

However, if you want dust, just come here on a regular sand storm day when we have totally brown skies for hours if not days, with grit getting everywhere. Those I’m used to.

Not much going on around here today. Hope your Saturday is interesting! Take care & keep safe! ❤

These are pictures of one of the many sandstorms we have where we live in TX. We are considered a semi-desert, so we see a lot of sand, especially in the early spring. I took these pictures some time ago, but we are having another day just about like this, today, though not quite as bad.
