It’s Sandstorm Again!
It was such a bad weekend! Our home was very dusty even all the doors were already locked tightly, the curtains, furnitures and appliances were all in a grimy condition. We used to go out every weekend to dine outdoors but how could we when the weather was like that? I hate to go out during these days but I had no choice since I had an appointment with my physician yesterday (that was part of why I was away from this blog more than one month ago), I saw many people in the streets wearing masks and I felt sorry for those Bangladesh workers who were still working outdoors even during these terrible weather. I hope I brought my camera with me so that I can take photos of how Kuwait looked like yesterday.
Many accidents were also reported these past few days, I read in Arabtimes this morning that the Sandstorms lead to 165 accident and people suffering from shortness of breath in different locations as Kuwait continues to experience sandstorms which will last until mid-July. (link)
I always miss my own country’s climate everytime I experienced something like this in Kuwait. Philippine’s weather is one of the best in this world, I daresay, especially in our hometown in Mindanao areas.
If it’s true that this will last until mid of July, then I think I have to practice wearing mask even I hate it. 😦
The year 2008 is expected to be Kuwait’s most dusty year, astronomical researcher Adel Al-Saadoun said. Read the full details here.
