Today’s forcast? Suck
Had our first good sandstorm of the season today. Wow. Here are some pics of the event.
Run for your lives! The wall of doom approaches! Repent, repent, fellow heathens! The time of reckoning draws neigh.
At this point, I ran back to my office (building in foreground) in an attempt to escape the nastiness.
The initial wave blotted out the sun, casting us into an erie rust-red dusk. It was something straight out of the Bible. The shock of the storm knocked out our power. Creepy.
Hey Salmons, get inside! A couple of us breathed in the muck to grab a few shots. It was crazy how the crap filled every nook and cranny of everything, including our lungs. My throat closed up and I could barely breathe. Bleck!
After a few minutes, the sun began to shine through. By now even our offices had become a cloudy mess from the storm blowing through every miniscule crack and gap in the soundly lacking Iraqi architecture.
Power kicked back on after a while, although the day didn’t return to normal for a bit. Wish you were here!!
