A couple of months ago during one of my weekly Happy Hour posts, I mentioned that we had a pretty nasty sandstorm (you can read about it HERE).
Here are some additional photos from that sandstorm:
No, those aren’t clouds . . . . . it’s sand coming our way!
The sandstorm off in the horizon, coming our way.
It is coming right at us! It was kind of like a tsunami wave . . . . you could see it coming, but you couldn’t do anything about it.
Here it comes!
A view from our rooftop, as the sand is starting to take over the buildings:
Here is a cool aerial photo of the storm coming in:
Besides leaving a thin layer of dust all over our cars and apartment windows, the dust storms don’t cause much damage. It’s like a thin layer of fog that settles in, but by morning it all cleared out. I would rather have a dust storm every few months rather than 6 months of winter back in Minnesota though!
I completely agree, especially after this last winter which seemed to have record snow.
The way the weather is this year, pushing 7+ months of Minnesota winter!
