So yesterday we had the first autumn rain. Let's be honest, it didn't clean the air as it can do in Europe. When you looked at the cars afterwards they were more dirty with sand that when the rain started! But less than they were this morning after last night sandstorm. It started when it was dark and I missed the beginning. So at a moment a walked into my kitchen, and hmm, it wasn't as clean as the last time I had been there. There was just dust everywhere. The air was full of sand and it took quite some time for it to settle, even after the storm was over.
|Sandstorm to hit Amman|
This picture was taken from my balcony, just before the storm hit Amman. Only I didn't realise that there was a storm on the way! I will know for next time. I don't think it happens so often though. The sun was going down and the light was amazing. You can barely see the sun on the picture, just above the trees on the left. Today the weather forecast says "Widespread Dust"! And though the blue sky is back over Amman, you can see the dust in the horizon.
