My mystery powder

Look at the picture closely and tell me what you think you are seeing. It’s not sand, it’s not ground coffee and definitely not powdered chocolate. It is tiny black or gray granules that is light like dust but is hard unlike ashes. It wouldn’t dissolve in water simply because it came from water. But again, it is not sand.

The powdery looking substance is the volcanic ashes that came from the erupting volcano more than 100 kilometers away. Since the granules were light so it flew with the wind until they landed to blanket our town with the blackish powder. That is the work of nature so we cannot do anything about it but to collect in a way of cleansing the surroundings.

    • Yes
    • No
