I thought I'd share a picture of how this week ended for us in Dubai.
And yes it really was this orange, no editing.
I hope you don't mind but seeing as the sandstorm made such an impression on UK news, judging by the number of people who messaged me, I though I'd add a few more pictures to this blog post.
very few cars with lights on
hoping the bus can see me
the view of a 14 lane highway, can just about see the other side
operation 'remove the dust' begins
Wow!!! That looks really bad! Sad people don't have their lights on though. Visibility must have been very poorReplyDelete
down to 50 meters at some pointsDelete
That's a pretty impressive sand storm. Good luck clearing the dust! that's gonna be quite a job. By the way, that was quite a comment you left on my blog the other day. You really have had some heavy duty experiences as a parent haven't you??ReplyDelete
lol John I sure do and the sandstorm i'm told was 'normal'Delete
Wow that is quite a sandstorm!ReplyDelete
I am hearing from friends who lives there that there is going to be another one. Stay safe.ReplyDelete
Happy Easter! #MySundayPhoto
look alike the next one due has missed usDelete
I heard about this as my dad has a friend out there on holiday this week and my cousin's hubby is also in Dubai with his company this weekend. Bet the cleanup operation is a pain in the bum! Happy Easter by the way :)ReplyDelete
oh I've given up trying to keep the sand out the house while the teen is here leaving doors openDelete
How yellow the whole world becomes during the sand storm. Does it sting the skin? I cannot imagine waiting for the bus! Thanks for sharing I have never seen a photo comparing the same area during and after. Very cool.ReplyDelete
it's very strange, you can feel the sand in the air, although you can feel it in your lungsDelete
WOw that's incredible, is this a regular thing?ReplyDelete
Thank you for linking up
the sandstorms occur as the seasons changeDelete
Wow, that really is amazing, the during and after pictures are so contrastingReplyDelete
even i look at the photos I can't believe the pics were taken on the same dayDelete
