Thunder and blowing dust

July 27, 2007 17:56 – 17:56

In giving the hourly observations, the National Weather Service just said of some location “97 degrees, with thunder and blowing dust.” That sounds more like an observation from the desert southwest than from the Washington, DC area. Yet, here we sit with an 8 inch rain deficit. It’s looking like much of the area should at least get a few minutes of rain. That should dampen the dust for a day or two. The dogwood tree in my front yard looks like it’s dying. About a quarter of the leaves are brown.
