Sand in the Desert

We've been getting more and more sandstorms around here lately.  I don't know if it's a seasonal thing or not, but it's unpleasant to have to ride to class and the winds actually get pretty high.  It also gets really dry when the sand blows.

Everything outside gets covered with a not so fine layer of sand.  We don't use our outdoor furniture much, but it does accumulate a lot of sand.

The weather seems to be cooling down lately.  It was in the 60s when I left the apartment this morning!
