“A dust storm or sandstorm is a meteorological phenomenon common in arid and semi-arid regions and arises when a gust front passes or when the wind force exceeds the threshold value where loose sand and dust are removed from the dry surface.”
Those with respiratory problems and susceptibility to dust allergy are in trouble. To some extent, others too!
Here a picture that I shot just five minutes back sticking the cam out from my office window through a busy day at work. It's a good break. I’m also hastily typing these few words before I'll get back to resume my work.
Pretty orange, ain’t it? ;) Here’s another picture with a colleague in the foreground.
I’ll have to cut down my driving speed by at least half on my way back home. As I am writing this, I can see the glow is only deepening by the minutes. Hope I’ll not be stranded here for lack of visibility on the roads!
Have a great day, while I shall try to breathe normal through that dust storm!
