red dust in the midwest
Anyone notice a red dust on your stuff this week? In this photo you can see some of what's left on my silver-painted balcony. It looks like rust, but isn't.
We've experienced this before in the Midwest.. see the link from the National Weather Service in Wisconsin that explains how dust from Texas storms gets transported up north sometimes (the link is from 2003). The second link from NASA shows satellite images from a dust storm just last week. Interesting, huh?
