Sand storms in Iraq

My husband is a Weather Forecaster in the Air Force and is serving in Iraq right now. Weather is a major factor over there. Steve has been super busy with storms the past 2 days. He shared a link with me of what sand storms are...I could never have imagined this! I guess they last for days and it's just dark. Just click http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjBfiw_ntH4 Steve did not tape this, someone else did...it was on youtube but this is at his base in Iraq.

That is CRAZY!! Tony said when he was over there, in a matter of two minutes, it can go from blue sky to black. A.Mazing.

That looks really scary! Does everyone have to stay inside until it is over?

Wow, I can't imagine having that last for days! I have never seen anything like this before!

I want to tell you also that my blog address has changed to nesttokeep.blogspot.com/ because I was having so much trouble with the other one! I hope your week has been a good one so far! :)

It's wild, isn't it? Jason told me about how it would literally just black out everything when he was there and would shut ops down, but I don't think we'll ever truly 'get it' unless we lived it as our soldier hubbies have.
Tell Steve we're thinking of him.
I'm so bummed he and Jason missed each other when they were in Qatar at the same time. I'd say maybe next time but I'm hoping there isn't a next time and the next time can be stateside at a base they're both tdy at!!!
Love ya girly~ L
