Sahara dust
« on: April 05, 2022, 09:12:30 AM »
March was a very dry month with only 2 mm of rain and much yellowish dust here in Belgium. I read that this is Sahara dust. I have to wipe it off every day. It sticks to vertical surfaces too like glass. Iíll have to clean the G4. Thereís probably much dust inside. I donít dare to look. Yesterday it started to rain but the dust keeps coming. When is this going to stop?

Same here. Reddish Sahara dust covering everything. Apocalyptic scenes at the car wash :-D

We had it bad in UK a few weeks ago.

Last month went skiing in Austria, and you could clearly see the difference between the prepared white piste and beige off-piste.

If I wipe it off with my hand itís yellow in the middle, thatís why I first thought that it was clay, with a sharp brown line at the side. If I look closely I see small red splinters of stone.

it is extreme and the second time within 14 days.

last time it was so heavy was 25 years ago and in summer.

in summer it can get actually dangerous for your vintage synthesizers and apple computers. :)
