    Actually Mike, I worked outside all day trimming trees and did not notice.
    Rayanne told me about it,
    I suppose ignorance is bliss!

    Yeah, if you did not know beter you might think its just a heavy haze due to high humidity. We saw this every summer when I worked in Nigeria. Dust is very fine and very high in atmosphere.

    Not at all

    A little hazy for a few days but none of the orange skies I saw photos of purportedly taken in Cancun. Cars having a very fine orange dusting was the only noticeable sign.

    The photo below was taken on the Boobs Cruise Friday 26th June

    For those of us with asthma it sucks. I've been struggling all weekend with my inhaler and stressed out about next week. We leave a week from Thursday to Temptations and I just don't want anything to ruin it.

    I wouldn't worry about it, it moved North from Cancun several days ago. Had friends in Oklahoma mentioning it today.

    Today (Sunday 28th) was very much like the pic I posted above, as was Saturday.

    I hate having asthma. They all think I have the Corona and steer clear
