Widespread dust

A couple of days ago a dust cloud descended upon Dubai. Of course, this is not exactly an uncommon weather phenomenon here. Visibility was reduced, but not overwhelmingly so. The dark sky and blowing wind reminded me of what it sometimes feels like in Houston when a thunderstorm is approaching. At least the dust kept the temperatures down; the day's high topped out at only 99 F!
