Great Riyadh Sandstorm

For those of you who live on the other side of the globe and not aware, yesterday a massive sandstorm hit Riyadh midday.

I remember in the 17 years or so I have been in Saudi witnessing first hand such awesomeness of nature… they’re quite terrifying and fascinating at the same time!

This is the equivelant of a “blizzard” for you Canadians :P
