Sand travel well and far. At the moment tons of sand has drifted onto roads in North Palm Springs, USA. Rain and strong winds got it there to the joy of local flora and fauna but with some traffic problems. The wind-born sand also causes breathing difficulties, especially for people with astma. As late as last week strong winds brought sand from the Sahara all the way up to the middle of Sweden, northern Europe causing fog and affecting air quality.
