no really. and it just kept getting worse.

there has been a sandstorm for 3 days now. it sucks to breathe. that crap gets in your lungs! i walk around in a kuffiya, one of those arab headdresses.

this was taken at about 4 pm. it is just dark because it is snowing sand. that’s kind of what it is like. new covering ont he ground all the time.

and this last one around 5:30 which should still be light.  it was so dark out that exterior lights started coming on.  it made my flash activiate which is why you see all of the sand in the air. but i figured that’s actually a good shot so that you can see how it is in the air, plus that color!

  1. We get some mild snowy nights in the winter up in Canada that look very similar to this.

    Is this a view from your barracks or where you are doing your work… or are they one and the same?
