Default Sand from the Sahara

Sitting at home nursing a bout of Covid, thinking to myself how the overcast sky looked very yellow. Looked outside and everything, including the ZTT is covered in a thick layer of sand.
Hoping the heavy rain forecast for this evening will wash it off.
Anyone else noticed it? Even left a thick layer on my window sills too.

I washed the white XF couple of hours ago. Whilst washing it, the rain came down and guess what. when I tried to wipe down the rainwater, it was yellow!

Sorry! I washed my car yesterday. Our sky was a pinky brown at sunset. very weird looking. Lots of "brown" cars here today! More rain forecast for later so they may get a rinse, or it could bring more!

It was so thick over here in France it was impossible to look out through the car windows.---


All the cars in the local super market car park were the same colour.--- That way to the car wash sir.

I'm just back from a few days on the Costa del Sol. Apart from being very wet the sky was amazing.

A sunny day at Mijas
