Firstly, thank you for all your good wishes re the lurgy...I am pleased to report that I am feeling tons better than I was...hopefully normal service will resume this week!
As you know, we don't get an awful lot of rain in this part of Spain...and when it rains it really does tend to POUR!
Mostly, we are relieved when the rain DOES come ...it gives the countryside (not to mention the gardens) such a boost.
However, sometimes (usually about twice a year) we have a downpour-in itself no bad thing; the problem being that the clouds have picked up what appears to be most of the Sahara Desert and then dumps it on us!
I know that the UK has been badly affected by the Saharan dust this week too, but I thought you might like to see how it manifested itself here
the pool is full of it!
the car is covered in it
and I'm fighting a constant battle with hose and broom to try and clean the terraces!
Having seen the amount that was deposited here, I was quite amazed there was anything left to such a pollution problem elsewhere!
I was however,inspired to make a layout about it (and you know THAT doesn't happen often these days!).
Here's my take on it:
I hope the air quality hasn't affected you too much this weekend and that the sun has shone wherever you are..even if just for a little while!
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
