SkyWatch: Saudi Arabia Sandstorm

Sandstorms in Saudi Arabia are common at certain times of the year.

They can be debilitating - schools and businesses are closed, people are hospitalized with breathing difficulties, and visibility can be diminished greatly causing more car accidents than normal.

To  visit MORE friendly skies around the world, fly on over to SKYWATCH  where you’ll find beautiful skies posted by bloggers all over the world.

After seeing these and reading your comments, I guess I should be happy with our cold and snow here in upstate NY. Cheers and happy holidays!

I can imagine they'd be quite an obstacle.

We get occasional sandstorms in the local S California deserts, but I don't think they are as severe as you get. Very hard to take photos in a sandstorm. Nice captures!
