This is a photo taken of the same dust storm from the previous post. Obviously this person had a much better (or worse...) view of it than I had! I didn't realize how bad it really was, especially since it didn't last long at all. Apparently people thought the world was ending and there was some panic. Now I can understand a little more. CRAZY.
Click here to go to the photographer's page with her recount of the experience. The season she mentions, which is now, called Al-Sarrayat I'm told roughly means tomatoe. Its a time when the weather is very unpredictable.
