Harmatton Has Arrived Again in Africa

When we arrived in Ghana last January, we wondered if we would ever see blue skies.  Then in March we did.  Now we are back to this condition again, which is called "harmatton."  The Harmattan is a cold-dry and dusty trade wind, blowing over the West African subregion including Ghana. This northeasterly wind blows from the Sahara Desert into the Gulf of Guinea between the end of November and the middle of March (winter). The name comes from or is related to an Akan cognate.
This photo was taken in the car today on our way back from the Temple in Accra.
