African Dust Clouds

Anybody else experiencing the African Dust Clouds that are blowing over? They have come through Texas and been here the last few weeks. I was wondering why I was so stopped up and wheezy, thought it was just my sinuses as usual, but I think the dust has probably contributed some too. Theres like a brown haze outside just hanging out. It got me to wonderin.... I ownder how many more particles of crap Jeep owners inhale compared to your typical soccer mom in an enclosed SUV or car? If you think about it, we must be inhaling a sh!t load of crap riding around in this crud. I bet its really great in the big cities where pollution is really bad. Just thinking out loud....[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. Think I may put my top up for a few days until this crap blows over.... Can you just imagine all the microbes and stuff that are in there...i'm not really worried about myself, but I drive my daughter around in there too and have to think about her.

Yep, I think that Spiderman masks would be the way to go.
