Have you heard of the dust storm that has made it from Africa to the USA?

One thing I did not realize is that most of the hurricanes we get on the East Coast actually originate from over Sahara and make it westward picking up steam on the Atlantic.

Another thing I had not realized is that dust storms make it to the USA by the same route! This year, there has been a particularly dense and strong one. It crossed the Caribbean last week and came into USA this weekend. As you can see the skies are hazy and the air quality in Hilton Head is fairly bad. Apparently, the dust is going to make its way to some parts of Ohio and Indiana even!

Back to our stomping grounds…

Hilton Head Island. Thought we will make a dash for the beach for the weekend. It will be a quick Friday-Monday thing.

Well, turns out the whole world had the exact same idea too!!! The beach resort is filled to the brim. Good news is that most are honoring social distancing. But not so much the mask thingy…

I know that the stereotype is that kids choose math or med science…

But this could still have been avoided!!! 🙂

In fact, I asked the young lady why is 2 inches the same as 10 cm? Or does linear dimension expand in translation?

Julia – her name – who grew up in the city of Atlanta and was thankful that her parents who also live there did not get hit directly by the riots – at least saw the sense of humor in it and both of us laughed.

Soon all the workers started looking at all the boards around with the same error. I think Fulton county is going to mark me Covid positive just to spite me 🙂 🙂

What color is my car?

The Taziki app asked for my car color when I ordered food for a curbside pickup. I put in as precise a car color as I could for this time of the year.

Turns out I need not have worried about they getting me mixed up with somebody else. I was the only car in the whole parking lot!!
