Covered in Dust

There is another building coming up near our home and with construction happening the dust flies around like crazy. This is made worse by the strong breeze we have in the mornings.The fine dust of the cement and the digging work has covered our homes in dust. Finally I got a couple of my neighbors to go with me to the builder and speak to him about covering the areas with tarps. It will help a little bit but we will still be covered in dust and grime.

My plants and lovely roses are mired in dust. I spray them down with water everyday to keep them breathing well. I also try to wipe them clean once in a while, but there are way too many plants on my balcony and terrace. All our neighborhood trees are brown with the dust. Only some rain can bring us some relief.

The allergies caused by the fine dust make so many people sick here. But there is very little we can do about it. Everyone is walking around in masks, and we are running out of face masks. The corona virus scare hasn’t helped either.
