These are some photos of a sand storm that swept in during the late afternoon on Friday April 13th. I have been hanging out with a large group of expats at an event organized by the Hash House Harriers, dubbed Black Friday for the date, but unwittingly appropriate for the weather to come.

The sand storm rolled in so quickly! When it hit the car, it rocked it, much like the sensation of being in a car wash when the first rollers hit. It was like driving through a blizzard after that, except with the high beams on you could still see the black asphalt of the pavement ahead. A Blackout, in stark contrast to the snowy whiteout consitions I`m used to back home in Canada!
