Sahara dust

The Sahara cloud of dust has been hovering over the Dominican Republic since last Saturday. This makes the sky appear very hazy and grayish. The dust cloud will make it even warmer and people with allergies will suffer more from the air. The broad cloud from the African desert will float around for between 7 and 9 days and will have a lot of influence on the weather in Dominican territory. According to meteorological analyst and television presenter Jean Suriel, the wind chill rises significantly these days due to the dust from the Sahara. Little rain is expected these days, with the population being recommended to stay hydrated and not to expose themselves to radiation from the sun. People who develop allergic processes from these particles floating in the air are also advised to drink plenty of water and fluids and have anti-allergy medication on hand.​

Ever since I moved here 17 years ago, I started having sneeze attacks and watery, itchy eyes. Never before had any allergies. Until the last couple years, I never heard any mention of Saraha dust. Now I know what the problem is.

Wear a mask and they sell drops that soothes the eye itch and remove the redness.

I have drops for my eyes and Zyrtec works well for the sneeze attacks. No way I am ever going to voluntarily wear a mask again.

I know that ONAMET did promise bother from Saharan Dust,
But honestly, no Sat shot nor any models forecasting the thickness of Saharan Air Layer, did ever promise such for our Island
and I did myself not see nor feel any of it.

Then you really do live in an island because it's as clear as the sky isn't

I was wondering why my vision was blurry, I used to clearly see the mountains from my window in Santiago.

I am having a thurst attack, means I will now open an other 5 liter can of good german beer here for Fathers Day BBQ.
Saharan Dust??? not over my Horizon here in Vallegina.
We are hot and cloud free, hence the frequent thurst attacks, but nothing special anywhere in the skies/air.
Happy Fathers Day(sneeze free, lol)
