As we enter the colder winter months here in South Africa, my husband is experiencing hot and windy weather in North Africa. Apart from daily temperatures soaring in the mid-fifties, he is living through the most incredible sandstorms. These sandstorms, known as Haboob, are prevalent at this time of the year and can number up to 24 in the season!
Hubby arrived home from work last Thursday and photographed the sandstorm from the rooftop of his apartment. In his e-mail to which he attached the images, he wryly added: “Khartoum at its best; certainly not for sissies!”
