Sandstorm




We had a sandstorm/thunderstorm here in Baghdad yesterday. These are some pics my husband and I took around 5 pm (sunset is not until 7:35 pm). Sandstorm season starts around now, springtime through summer, and occurs a few times during the winter. For women in Baghdad, sandstorms usually mean a really dusty house that needs a major dusting/mopping/wipe down. For car owners, it means a really dirty car, inside and out.

The good thing about this storm, is that it helped bring down the temps a bit this week, which were skyrocketing to the 90's (Fahrenheit). Today the weather is cool, in the mid seventies.

Fatima BenteRasul was Mohammad's daughter.
She was a pig and also her husband was a hog.
The hog fucked the pig so imam Hosain and imam Hasan bore.
