We woke up the other morning to the wind slamming a door shut... signaling the arrival of a dust storm. Tim had his wits about him and snapped the following photos...

|dust cloud rolling in...|
|bright orange Niger dust!|
|storm is finally about even with our terrace... instead of breathing in all the sand, we moved inside|
|all of the dust in the air makes it quite dark... we've actually seen it get darker than this...|
|the first wave of dust has passed and the rain is beginning|
I remember the first time I saw dust storm depicted in a movie. I thought it couldn't be true...that what was shown in that movie was definitely a "Hollywood"-ized version... until I saw my first. Hollywood didn't do it justice!
