Blowing Dust

We are in a drought. Today, the winds kicked up and the dust was blowing. It was low dust, you could see the blue sky above it.  But it was enough to fill my sinuses and give me a headache, make me sneeze, and make my skin itch. 

If you have not been in a desert dust storm, you might not understand the irritation the blowing dust and strong wind can precipitate. It has been said that the blowing wind creates negative ions in the atmosphere which can irritate people.  I believe it. 

I am grateful to have a house to be in, and thankful I can be out of the wind tonight.
