The weekend before last Dubai was hit with a sandstorm that lasted 3 days. Visibility was poor and drivers were urged to drive with caution (Yeah, as IF!) and everything indoors had to be cleaned afterwards. A fine layer or powder-like sand covered everything.
I am wondering if another sandstorm, worse than the last, is on the way. Today there was a really heavy sandstorm in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
I don’t actually know which way the wind is blowing so I don’t really know if we are in the path of this sandstorm. But I do know that there isn’t much but sand between Riyadh and Dubai so if the wind is blowing in our direction it should be interesting.
Can anyone candirect me to a decent weather site for the Gulf that shows wind direction?
Meanwhile, the leaders of Egypt, Syria and Sauda Arabia are having a tete a tete in Riyadh tomorrow to see if they can become a bit more comfortable with eachother. http://edition.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/meast/03/10/mini.summit/index.html
Egypt and Saudi Arabia have been a bit dark on Syria because of its leanings toward Iran.
Hope they don’t get ‘sanded-in’, or maybe a few games of rock, scissors, hammer will help the team bond?
