I love dust storms. I live on the coast and they don't allow development of tropical storms and they ain't so bad.

You're not alone. Wife was barley outside Saturday and it messed her up.

I on the other hand was outside both Saturday and Sunday. I've chatted with the voices in my head and we all agreed we're fine.

I donít remember these ďdust stormsĒ growing up in east Texas? I asked my parents as well and neither do they. Maybe just never reported?? Back then?

I think anything that gives some relief from the baking/blistering southwest Texas heat is ok in my book.

And those covid 19 masks should help those affect by breathing the dust

Just enough sense to move away from the dust. Kidding, Kidding

It's like the wolves in Yellowstone.
No one wants to kill a lion in Africa anymore because of the bad publicity.
So now there's more lion poop dried out and making more dust. Lol

I am sick of it also, I know it is a first world problem but I have gone from cleaning to pool once a week to cleaning every other day. The amount of dirt that settles on the sundeck and the seats in the pool is crazy.

My allergies have been off the charts since Friday afternoon. Sore throat, nose running like a faucet or congested, has gone both ways.

Happened to my sister. She got tested for covid just in case but the docs said they believe it is just allergies since over the counter allergy medicine helped. Will report back once she gets her results

Yep, my wife got tested yesterday and I'm thinking it's this dust too... We've been outside trying to work on the yard and what's left of her garden... Seems these things mess with me more each year... Gettin' old ain't for sissies! Was pretty nice in South Texas last week when we were fillin' feeders n mowin' n moving stands and such... haze sort a kept the edge off a bit...
