Today (April 17) I left my trailer expecting the usual roasting sun and temps – we had a steady climb into the 90s last week. Instead, I found this:
The temperature must have fallen 20 or 25 degrees overnight. It is quite pleasant.
The dust has an odor that’s not completely an odor: it’s like walking into a woodworking shop where someone is using a very fine grit power sander. In the late afternoon, the air takes on a golden color that deepens until the sun sets. You have to see it to believe it. At night, the dust in the lights oddly reminds me of a hard snowstorm on a very cold night, with fine flakes.
