View of St. Thomas from Lindholm overlook

View of St. Thomas from Lindholm overlook

You know you have a dusty day when you can barely see St. Thomas from St. John. For the last few days we here on St. John have experienced a heavier than usual occurance of Sahara Dust conditions. At first. I though that it might have something to do with volcanic dust from Montserrat, but according to the Montserrat Volcano Observatory website the volcanic activity on that Caribbean Island has been low.

The silver lining in the dust cloud is that the wind currents that cause them supposedly do not bring hurricanes, which are way worse, at least in the short term, than African dust.

Update me when site is updated
