When I was in Iraq, we got a sandstorm that lasted for a week. That is no lie. They said that they could see it from space, a giant tan cloud over the entire country.The sky was orange and everything was covered in a fine, choking mist. Most surreal experience of my life.
Wow, that sounds surreal, thanks for sharing.
That video is incredible!
I've been in a sandstorm in Luxor in Egypt that started off by completely obscuring the west bank of the Nile in a grey and tan haze to the point where none of the far bank could be seen. When it started blowing down the streets on the east bank I retired to my hotel with a book only to find that it was starting to filter in through the aircon units!Evil stuff.
