Hot Dust Storm

106°F / 42°C and Hot and DUSTY. This is what it looks like at 3:30 PM:


The photo is not altered in any way. The orangey-yellow color is the real color of the sky. Totally weird. Big huge rolling waves coming in, good weekend to go shelling!

  4. Wow! That’s surreal! 8|

    On a brighter, clearer note, I understand what you mean. I, for one, left a law practice that made me incredibly unhappy – I pursued teaching, and do not regret it. 😀

  5. Mclovin – LLOOOLLLLL. Yeh, imagine dust, heat AND humidity. Has it seemed to you that these dust storms seem to pop up on the weekends, or is it just me?

    Bojacob – HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! For me, it is more a wheeze in the chest.

    Oooops, Kaos, I shoulda read your comment before I wrote the one to McLovin! You are right! (or if we are wrong, we both have the wrong perception.)

    Nomad/C – I read through your blog and I guess I missed that part, or maybe you didn’t say it explicitly. Wooo Hoooo on the change!

  6. Your photo entry inspires me to put pen to paper, and come up with – ” Love in the Time of Dust Storms.”
    By the way, I find dust storms very sexy very romantic, no kidding!

  7. LLLOOOOLLLLL, BL, how romantic is it when you can’t breathe????? A wheezing partner is a turn-on for you??

  8. Well, it’s a bit like it may be winter outside but in my heart it’s spring. Dust storms are gorgeous to look at from the comfort of one’s home. I wasn’t suggesting erotic fore-play or somesuch on the beach or out on the Corniche promenade when it is dust storming, either. Just stay indoors and each one have plenty of fun with your respective partners – leave that to your imagination!
    PS : There’s no chance in hell I can find a wheezing partner a turn-on but am prepared to make concessions for Isreali secret service agents giving to wheezing. They are just too delicious to pass up on.
