Dubai sandstorm January 28, 2011

We were out today at the Dubai Japanese School to attend their Sports Day program when a huge sandstorm so strong, refusing to stop halted all activities and had us running back into the building!

This is the first major sandstorm we’ve seen since we came here in 2007. It’s scary and sand hurts!

    • Oh no, it doesn?t! Please don?t be scared?
      Dubai is fine, great weather, rainless, cloudless 330 days in a year on the average!

      You?ll get affected most by these sandstorms when they do come, when you?re in an open field, otherwise, you might be just at home or inside the office and in the city with buildings, you won?t even know a sandstorm is going on!

  1. what were they trying to do with the tarp? Now the men headdresses and women’s headcover make sense… keep the sand from moving down collars and into clothing.

    Still…looks very interesting to experience it.
