Sahara-Regen in München

Gestern wunderte ich mich, warum mein sauberes schwarzes Radl so dreckig aussah. Es war über und über mit gelblichen Flecken besprüht. Aber nicht nur mein Radl sah so aus, die Autos hatten alle die gleichen dreckig-gelben Flecken.

Heute lese ich in den Zeitungen: Sahara-Regen über München. Die gelben Flecken stammten vom Regen, der feinsten Sand aus der Sahara mit brachte.

Das ist mir auch öfter passiert, als ich noch in Südbaden lebte. Das erste Mal habe ich mich doch sehr gewundert.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. (Anon)

Hi IMaRout,

what does the following of your words mean? Does it mean you missed it or it happened to you as well?

** I've just vaguely remembered my native country had/has this problem as well.
It's meant to be a seasonable thing if I am not wrong.
It is called "yellow sand phenomenon".
I actually don't remember being caught in it.
I don't know where the sands come from in my native nation, though.

Yes, it used to be a seasonal thing. I'm not so sure any more.

What I meant by "Das ist mir auch öfter passiert" is that 'this happened to me, too, several times.'

I used to live in the south of Germany for twenty years, close to the French and Swiss borders. At times, winds brought Sahara sand across the Mediterranean and France through the Belfort Gap / Burgundian Gate to us.

I never thought it would work across the Alps, too.
