Before & After

They call it a "dust storm," but it's a sand storm. Here's the same view as the sun vanished:

Heh heh (to the above from Warren)

But...regarding the dust storm - what do they do about that pool? Doesn't it get pretty full of sand? If it does, how do they get it out?

Sunrise here now is about 6am. I get up at 5:40am. And when I look out my window, there are already 2 "pool-boys" cleaning each of the 5-6 pools.

One in Wisconsin, too, it appears.

But how? they can't very well use shovels... I'd think pumps would clog...

No doubt there's something very simple, but I'm not seeing it!

All I see are the same pumps as used in the U.S. On the other hand, they can afford serious filtration systems here. . .
