  1. Wow what a difference. A sand storm sounds so exotic but I bet it's a pain in real life. #MySundayPhoto

  3. That's a huge difference. I remember when we got sciroccos coming over from Africa when I lived in canaria the day would be so dull and everything had an orange tint to it x #mysundayphoto

    1. it is weird when visibility just drops when you're driving

  7. It must be very strange to have visibility drop so much and to see something so iconic disappear from your view.

  10. I am always thinking of how this is? Does it hurt when you go out or are you even aloud to go out during a sandstorm? #mysundayphoto

    1. earlier this year the government closed schools early to allow for safe driving, you dont actually feel the sand, but it does get everywhere including your mouth, eyes and in your clothing

  13. Oh I remember those sandstorms from when we lived in Qatar. In fact, I remember that my son wrote 'Hello' one day on my hall table (cheek) The dust had managed to get through the closed door and in through the AC unit. Happy Days!
    I laugh when people talk about dust back here in the UK... they know nothing ;D

    1. oh the dust can get through sealed windows and door and when we sit on the sofa a cloud appears around us

  14. Crazy and amazing all at the same time! Thanks for sharing it, most of us will never experience this in person!

  15. Wow! How long does something like that last? We have terrible smog here some days the visibility is worse than others but we don't have the sand issue.

    1. this one lasted most of the day, the longest was 2 full days and really thick with visibility only 20 meters

  16. I've been in a couple of small sandstorms here, but they're red from our iron land. They are truly annoying and usually don't happen close to town, only once you get further out toward the drier desert areas. Big ones that got into your whole home would drive me a little nuts I think. I love the difference in the photos. It really shows the difference in visibility. Even the little distance details just above that long roof are gone.

    1. yes we still go out but driving can be a bit difficult and often you find yourself stationary for a few minutes on a 6 lane highway
