another one bites the dust

thankfully 2nd semester has been steadier than the 1st semester.

the heat is gone.

 we know the area and how to get around.

we are involved but not overwhelmed.

stability is a breath of fresh air. 

fresh air, on the other hand has been hard to come by this week.

the harmattan winds are upon us.  what is harmattan you ask?  ...well let my good friend encyclopedia brittanica tell you:

harmattan, hot, dry wind that blows from the northeast or east in the western Sahara and is strongest in late fall and winter (late November to mid-March). It usually carries large amounts of dust, which it transports hundreds of kilometres out over the Atlantic Ocean.
harmattan. (2012). In Encyclopædia Britannica. Retrieved from http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/255457/harmattan

tuesday was to be a school 5k race but  it was post-poned. no one wants to run in a stagnant cloud of dust. good call administration.

Dust taken on Monday last week (thanks, Stan, for the pics)

Wow!!! That's some dust!

I took you to Oregon the other week, so hopefully we got some of the dust washed off. :)
