2 PM Monday. The air is hot, close. It's windier than I've ever seen it, and the air is brown and thick with dust and redolent of cattle. Dust storm!

"Does this happen often?" I ask.
"The last one was about three years ago."

It scares me; for some reason I can't name, I want to go quickly home after work, then hide far away from windows until it passes.
No. Dust in the air is not an excuse to skip the gym, damn it.

When I come out of the gym, the air is cold and clear. It didn't rain in my neighborhood, but I smell rain on the wind.
