    Default dust trouble

    Too bad the rovers weren't equipped with a blower to
    do away with dust. But then, they weren't expected to have to endure a dust
    storm either.

    But don't think the dust is on the solar panels to stay. One of them,
    quite a while back, had a sudden jump in SP output, later attributed
    to a "dust devil" removing dust from the solar panels. This was
    before NASA recognized active "dust devils" in rover images.

    I say bring on the "dust devils."
