Wow what a difference. A sand storm sounds so exotic but I bet it's a pain in real life. #MySundayPhoto
i did forget to bring the washing in, which was a white wash so a bit annoyed at having to re do it, we went out in the afternoon and the sand was stinging our eyes
Wow, the light and colour look totally different.
everything god s a bit yellowy in a sand storm, but this one was more of a white out
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
it's most strange when the world outside your window turns orange
Wow that is incredible, it must be the weirdest feeling being in a sandstorm x
everything gets covered in sand and it gets everywhere including in your clothing
Without sounding like a plum, is this a regular thing? I bet it's a nightmare Thank you for linking up
they occur when the season start to change, this one was very mild and just a warm up
Wow it must have been strange being in a sand storm, Clio lending a helping hand for Coombe Mill
it is weird when visibility just drops when you're driving
It must be very strange to have visibility drop so much and to see something so iconic disappear from your view.
it is very weird, especially when i'm driving as i navigate by the land marks, with so many road works and diversions the sat nag is useless
Crikey - that looks a bit scary! I hope it soon passed #mysundayphoto
it was like that for the best part of the day
Oh wow it must be so bizarre at first to see that suddenly just descend like that. We saw it once on holiday and it was really strange to see!
once or twice we've come to a stand still whilst driving till it passes
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
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
Oh gosh! That looks rather scary....
it can be if you're driving
Oh this is making me so excited, I am flying to Dubai in less than a week. A great picture xx
have a fab time, it's very hot here at the moment, i'm off to the Uk tomorrow
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
oh the dust can get through sealed windows and door and when we sit on the sofa a cloud appears around us
Crazy and amazing all at the same time! Thanks for sharing it, most of us will never experience this in person!
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.
this one lasted most of the day, the longest was 2 full days and really thick with visibility only 20 meters
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.
this was a mild one, we can lose visibility down to only 20 meters
wow what an experience! what a diff to the air and light
when we get big ones the air turns orange
Wow! I mean...what an experience! Are you allowed to be out and about when this happens?
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
It must be an incredibly thing to see. The two photos look so different
it's amazing to see but an experience and the cleaning up of the sand afterwards is a nightmare
Wow it does look very different. Can't imagine it must be much fun being out in a sand storm though.
it's very dusty and you need to cover your eyes
That's an amazing difference, I can imagine that sand storms are really horrible.
it's a pain in the arse clearing up afterwards
