It’s the weirdest thing. As I look out the window now, everything has a yellow hue, it’s even making the room look yellow. Outside it looks like yellow fog, but it’s dust in the air. Distant buildings look hazy; trees, leaves and cars look like they have a yellow frost on them.
And it feels pretty horrid too. It catches in the back of your throat, the wind whips it into your eyes. You breathe it in. In fact, it even has a distinctive smell. With each breathe you can sense it in the air – it smells like dirt. Even my clothes smell dirty with it. I can taste it on my lips, I can feel it on my skin.
