Tsunami of Sand in Kuwait

On March 25 Friday evening, I informed my husband that I was ready to go (for a grocery shopping) when we suddenly heard a bang on our glass window. Then from a perfectly lovely day it suddenly turned dark, all we could hear was some whooshing sound from the outside. Sandstorm, we immediately concluded. But we soon realized it was not an ordinary sandstorm as the whooshing sounds got louder and more forceful. It was really pitch black outside. We couldn’t even make out the lights from the nearby apartment buildings. We were lucky that though the dust managed to seep into our apartment we were still inside, which was definitely safer. It would be truly unfortunate if you're caught in the middle of it.

I was a bit scared since what happened in Japan was still fresh in my mind. I couldn’t help but think of the myth that 2012 marks the end of the world. Maybe we should reconsider our plan of getting preggy this year since the world will end soon anyway....?
