What Happened To The Sahara Dust?

Well, our TV weather people have been taunting the great sunset colors this week due to a huge Sahara Desert dust cloud that has made its way across the Atlantic. Twice we’ve gone out to record the colorful sky at sunset…and twice we have been underwhelmed. Gees’, all we wanted was a little color in […]

Executive Offices
