Dust....An Incredible Force of Nature

6/24/2020 (Permalink)

A Dust Storm.....Really?  Yep! It's incredible the power and force of nature that we experience each and every day.

Two days ago The Washington Post published an article on the Sahara Dust storm which is supposed to make landfall in the next day. It's fascinating to read how different parts of the United States will be affected. This dust cloud is about 4,000 miles long!  The dust plume is expected to hit Texas and Louisana on Thursday. It's predicted that by Saturday this monster dust plume will stretch all the way up into the Midwest, most likely affecting all the United States. 

How will this affect our daily life? 

Well, if you are in the southern US you may experience poor visibility including white out conditions, and if it rains most likely the rain and dust will mix making it look like it's raining brown. Citizens may also experience breathing difficulties. 

In the Midwest, the Post reports that there may be fine dust on cars outside, people experiencing breathing difficulties and suprisingly more intense sunsets. 

Sharing information and being in awe of nature is a beautiful thing!
