We could see the sand storm off in the distance.
.....and then it was in front of us.
It kept getting closer....
Next thing we knew we were in the middle of it and there was no escaping it. The wind was blowing so hard Bob had to really grip the steering wheel to keep us on the road.
There wasn't anyone playing golf today! That's sand blowing!
It just kept getting worse. I didn't think we'd ever get out of it.
We finally did get clear of the blowing sand. Here's a picture of some small mountains off in the distance. That "cloud" in front the mountain is blowing sand.
So this is our first experience with a sandstorm in the desert. Its one we hope we don't have often.
