The Saharan dust cloud

Post by PeteRasche »

Yeah, I've read it's not uncommon during Hurricane season, but one this big hasn't happened in a long time. Seriously,.... How F'ED UP is 2020???

Get your cameras though, they say the sunrises and sunsets are stunningly beautiful.

Bonus: hot dry desert air prevents tropical weather formations. So, ya know, no hurricanes for a few weeks.

Well, there’s already massive locust swarms in Africa so next up is toxic red tides and heat waves. :twisted:

Have you met 2020?? There may still be time for a storm to form in the gulf before the dust gets here.

Or, you know, we somehow get a hurricane of dust and everything gets sandblasted. And New Orleans manages to flood during that too.

At this stage, it could be part of a mass mummy attack and I wouldn't be surprised....
