Life After Dust

Surprisingly clear despite yesterday's all-day dust storm
Desert sky was surprisingly clear after yesterday's nearly all-day dust storm.  The wind was barely a breeze when we started off on our morning hike.  It only began to strengthen slightly when we were almost finished with the outing.

Because the fierce wind shredded part of the blue plastic tarp I have covering the large skylight over our entrance way I had to get up on the roof after our trek to do some maintenance work.

I was able to salvage nearly all of the tarp and secure it in place again; hoping it lasts through the next major wind event, which is coming this week.
