#2 Harmattan surprise

Hmtn We are in the middle of the hottest season here, where temps stay around 105-110, and the humidity is always at least 80%.  I call it wretched season.

But this morning I woke up and saw a glorious haze in the sky.  Gone are the heat and humidity, or at least the humidity, because the harmattan winds are back!  They blow lovely dry air in from the Sahara.  Also half the dust from the desert, but for today it's a dry heat again, so who cares?  Being in the States from December-February I thought I'd missed all of coolish season, but West Africa seems to have saved a day of harmattan just for me.
