April Showers Bring Less Power

And... Hotter Days. The Temperature continues to rise and we are doing our best to stay in the shade! We have experienced a new weather phenomenon which everyone here calls a "Haboob", also known as a dust storm. It is crazy! What seems to be a wall of dust and dirt comes across the sky and through town, which leaves everything looking orange and only dust in every crack in the house. These are pictures of our first Haboob, and they are not the greatest pictures because we were trying to escape before we got loaded down with the grit! Yes, the next day we are left doing nothing but cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning. People here find it hard to believe that we don't have these back home! It's a way of life here... one we must learn to adjust to. :-)
