Dusty! Dusty! Dusty!

It is super dusty this time a year! We live in a semi-arid part of the country (it's just one step away from desert climate). We usually only get rain 2 times a year, so as you can imagine it's dusty!! This is one of our little balconies. It was swept and mopped at about 8:00 am... this is what it looked like by 2:00 pm!!!
In just a matter of hours everything is covered in a blanket of red dust!
Which isn't the best when you have to hang your laundry to dry outside :) haha! I have to remember to bring them in as soon as their dry (this time of year is only 15-30 minutes most of the time!!) or else they'll be covered in dust too! This is what happens if I leave out the laundry for about an hour ... It's hard to see in the picture, but do you see that brown line on the shirt? That's where it was hanging over the bar and the dust collected!
I can just pick it up and shake it off and it's totally fine... just a bit dusty! haha! I'm so glad I'm not allergic to dust!!!

Wow! Crazy!! I noticed the shirt in the photo was right side out... not sure if you do them all like that, but on the equator we always hung them inside out so the color wouldn't fade so fast...but it might work to keep the dust lines on the inside of the shirt!?

Still though, what a cool life! I wonder how many dryers out there can dry a load in 15 minutes!?!?!

Sharon! Hey - I do try to turn them inside out if I can, but some days it's just a lot of extra work :) haha!

Very true about the dryer thing! and drying them outside is free!!!!

I didn't realize you guys had dust like that! We have it too. The wind is always a nice break from the heat, but you always know what the wind brings along with it . . . I always kind of wonder what it looks like in my lungs ???
