Dusty Days Ahead ~ June 23rd

The only limit to our realization of
tomorrow will be our doubts of today...

Saharan dust arrives in South Florida this week.
The milkiness of the skies over South Florida will 
increase this week as the edge of a thick plume of dust 
from the Sahara Desert in Africa reaches our shores.
 We should start to notice the plume today, with the
 most conspicuous effects Thursday and Friday.

A giant Saharan dust cloud spanning over 2000
 miles wide that made its way across the Atlantic Ocean
 toward the Caribbean, Florida, and the Gulf of Mexico
 this week could mean a pause in hurricane and tropical 
storm formation but also spark harmful algae
 blooms around the Sunshine State.

I can already feel my lungs tightening up.  Allergies 
are in high gear and for sure I have a sinus infection ๐Ÿ˜ญ
The joys of getting older are sure in high gear right now.

My sister in Puerto has already been seeing the 
hazy cloud in her area.  Of course we have the little 
video of it.  Before going to bed I said to Arvid, "Nirvana 
sent a video of the Sahara Dust over Puerto Rico๐ŸŒด"  
He said, "how come you didn't show it to me?"

I never know with Arvid.  Most times he says he's too busy
 for this "nonsense" as he calls it, but then he surprises me.

Here at home it is currently a clear morning.
 ๐Ÿคท Who knows what the weather has in store for
 the rest of the day, but for now another beautiful 
morning awaits us and as always I am grateful.

The above picture was from yesterday's walk.
A good day awaits us.  We will be busy.

The struggle ends when gratitude begins...
