A lady my Mom works with son is in IRAQ. He sent her these pictures. Could be real I guess... :idunno:


These sand storms better known as a "Shamal" in this region can be extremely dangerous and folks should take cover if they see one approaching.

Do you remember the movie, the Mummy, no special effects here... This is REAL...Sand Storm, 26 April 2005. Al Asad, IRAQ, t's a wall of sand traveling at 60 mph.

Having been on the receiving end of one of those, the video doesn't do it justice. It's even more awe inspiring in person. Like the sun just goes out. We'd get lost moving between tents just 50-100ft apart. Besides being shot at and mortared, it was the second scariest part of my "vacation".
