The Sharan dust has arrived big time. Everyone is complaining of burning eyes, sneezing, and all the fun things that the dust brings.
Thankfully it does not bring hurricanes.

There is an ocean out there somewhere.



 The hills look hazy and smoky.

Good morning
Our St Maarten Met Office has put​ us on a dust alert since a huge plume of Saharan dust is heading towards the Caribbean.
Our Met Office Facebook post this morning says this:

Air quality across St. Maarten has begun to deteriorate as a result of Saharan dust gradually spreading across the region. The milky appearance of the sky is due to dust particles suspended in the atmosphere. As time progress the air will become drier and dustier, persons with allergies/ and or respiratory illnesses should take the necessary precautions and limit outdoor activities.
