Phoenix Dust Storm July 5th, 2011/ Handmade Wednesday Store Co-host

This is what rolled through Phoenix. It was over 50 miles wide and moving about 50 miles an hour. flights were grounded and many comuniaters where stuck on the side of the road because they could not see to drive. My exact location did not get the brunt of the storm. It did however get the massive thunder storm that followed. Thanks to the dust storm, we now have manadority stay inside notice from our doctors  due to our serve allergies. This is to keep us from going to the emergancy room.

It is still very dusty hazy this morning, when I walked my DH out the door for work. He again emphasized what I already knew. This is why we have ear loop facial masks not just for cleaning but for weather.

I know one mom thought I was seriously lossing mental stability when she heard I kept some on hand. Even more so if we were sick and headed to the doctor's office during flu season. I don't care! Guess what we didn't get the flu this season. We didn't get streap throat this season. The only thing we got were  constant sinus/ear infections. Hello...the  cowboys and indians were on to something people.

Knock Knock any body listening to what I am saying.

So, if you were wondering how to reduce the number of visits to the  doctor from gardening, excerising outside, and you go.
