Trials and traumas of a full-time mum in Dubai

Sandstorm in Dubai

with 3 comments

Just as I was on the school run today, something happened to the sky. In a matter of seconds it went from being clear, blue and sunny, to the midst of a sandstorm. I literally watched – and felt – the edge of it hit the car.

It’s like being swallowed by something from a science fiction movie. Sadly, I was driving and didn’t have time to take a pic, but @MMbinRashid posted this brilliant one on Twitter:

I’m still rubbing sand out of my ears and off my scalp.
