Sandstorm

This two days the weather in Dubai and Abu Dhabi was not so nice for me to snap some sceneries on my way back home. The wind blow quite strong and it brings the fine sand flying around the sky, in the proper term it calls 'Sandstorm'.

It's not so bad after all, it's just a minor sandstorm, we still can see the road from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, but when I get out from car at petrol station, I really can't open my eyes, the fine sand flew into my eyes. Workers at perol station also need to cover their face and eyes.

In Dubai, he visibility getting bad.

In the highway, can't see the building at the opposite side.

Front view, you can see how bad it is

Even the sunlight also not that strong anymore

According to my colleague, the sandstorm was not serious at all, he experienced even worst, everyone have to stop at road because can't see the road at all until the sandstorm has slow down then only can continue their journey.

Sand Attack!!!

Eh.. I didn't notice the sand storm. Probably because I was hiding inside the flat most of the time. Either that, or it was only blowing in the outskirts. Now we know why they wear the headscarf, white robe and slippers-eh? You wanna get an outfit like that too, to protect yourself from the sand?? :D
