A different yellow dust

And not Phillip Pullman's dust, either.

The windows to our classrooms were left open (screened, but open) over the weekend and everything was coated in a yellow powder. I tried to tell me students it was hwangsa (황사), the Korean name for the dust coming from China's deserts and literally 'yellow dust', but htey were having none of it.

Who'da thunk there were that many trees in Korea?

Oh, and identity thieves, here is your chance; how many times can you find perfectly dusted fingerprints just waiting to be printed out and used...somehow?
