a day out in the dust!

Today Jack is going to the babysitters. Lucy and I are heading down to the Four Seasons here in Doha, for a day together. Sadly, we wont be spending much time outside due to the sandstorm.

What is a sandstorm?

It occurs when heavy, constant winds move the dust around and off the ground. Wikipedia has a great article, with a fantastic picture.

Here's a great aerial view of a sandstorm:
