High Winds in Town Causing Dust

Driving in to work I kept feeling my little car sway back and forth on the road. Now, at the shop, looking out across the parking lot toward the mountains I can see this thick haze of glacial dust kicked up obscuring the bottom half of the mountains out toward Palmer. I can only imagine how thick the dust probably is over in Palmer. I had planned to run over there today, but with these winds I think I will put that off until Monday, or until I have a Mars space suit that would let me survive in that micro-fine dust blowing out off the glaciers.
