The sound of sand blowing kind of sounds like the sea. I've heard sand blowing in the desert. I'm told that sand with different grain sizes sound different. That of course make sense.
Oh how fascinating is that?!!! Wow!

Hope its not cloudy.
If you were excited about getting a glimpse of September's Harvest Moon eclipse, you're not going to miss 2017's first full moon on Thursday, Jan. 12. January's full moon — also known as the Wolf Moon — was named by Native American tribes, according to .
Throughout the year, if you notice people referring to the full moons with a range of nicknames, it's because tribes gave each month's full moon its own name in order to keep track of the seasons, which is pretty genius, if you ask us. Some of the year's other full moon monikers include Snow Moon, Flower Moon, Strawberry Moon, and Hunter's Moon.
But that begs the question: Why Wolf Moon for the month of January? During the cold, wintery month, hungry wolves would often gather around Native American villages and howl at the moon — makes sense!
In order to catch Thursday's moon at its brightest, advises heading outside between midnight and sunrise to witness the Wolf Moon in full effect.
