After the Heat Comes the Storm

After a week or so of humidity and a few days of intense heat, comes the sand storm and you know what will happen next. And if not then you should know that these fine sands (yeah, lots of them) will get into even the smallest hole or gap in your window panel and doors. So there will be dust all over the house again when this storm is done. It is the reason why all the window panels and all the sides of the doors in the house are all taped-up.

And that’s not all there is because I am just talking about the mess that it will bring inside the house and not yet the one that you can obviously see outside. As what I have said, aside from the very obvious fine sands all over the front yard, it also carries all the trash and whatever that the storm can carry with along the way. Sometimes if it’s so strong already and would last longer than we thought it is then it surely will make its own mini dunes. The worse thing is that it also blankets the windshield of hubby’s car and he is just lucky that the fittings of his car doors are still in good shape.

Facing Another Long Summer Ahead

We are now officially back in reality and hubby starts working again, as if he has a choice. He’s been working now for four days since we arrived from our vacation and I think he too are still trying to settle down to the rigors of his work. For sure he has so many things to catch up with work even he was only out for four weeks. I could sense it from him even if he seldom says something of his work.

On the other hand, I could feel already the scorching heat of the summer, as if there’s a fire above my skin. Even it was still 30 minutes past seven in the morning the heat of the summer is already unbearable if you stay longer than 10 minutes under the sun. It would mean that our son will be staying more in the house again as he cannot tolerate with extreme weather that his skin dry up so fast then it become so itchy. It’s the reason why we have invested so much in his moisturizer and it is not just ordinary.

Anyway, it is still a very long summer that we will be facing and hoping that there will be less sand storm ahead of us. And that just reminded me that I still have to re-tape the whole windows and doors in the house in preparation for the sand storms.
