We were all subdued today as March blew out so April could blow in. I just hope that's the last of the nasty sand storms. My camera had a blast today, we were all so lazy and just content to listen to the wind as it made the roof sound like thunder. So did you get any sand storms?

We do not have sand storms in Switzerland, but when the wind really blows and there are sand storms in the Sahara we get the red sand here.

I've never seen red sand, ours is a light tan to a dirty brown depending on which direction its coming from.

@rebelann Red sand stains and it is a pain to clean when this happens. We are lucky that it only happens once in a while.

It can get windy here with the Santa Anas. The kitties are real buds.

Yeah, I've heard about them, they're almost as bad as our sand storms. Yep, the smaller one is the youngest at about 12 or 13 and grew up with Max, the orange tabby, he's 17.

Nothing as eventful as it happens in your part of the world. Everyday there is something or the other that deserves reporting

It's just the weather, everybody writes about the weather.

i've talked to filipinos who worked in the middle east who have experienced sandstorms. they say it can be scary if it's your first time. how often do you get sand storms in texas? does it depend on the seasons?

I'm in southwest texas where sand storms happen often. In the north east part of texas they get thunderstorms and tornados.
