Dust Storms and Sunsets

There are many stories in the Coachella Valley of people driving home from work and having their cars sandblasted by the frequent dust storms with the result being a new paint job. This valley is windy, that’s the reason they have a wind farm here! See Harnessing the Wind.

On this drive back to our “temporary home” in Sky Valley the dust was really picking up. Fortunately we were in Paul’s Subaru. Thanks Paul, I’ll drive next time! Actually it wasn’t too bad this time. I’m sure the BMW owner ahead of us was happy.
