A horrible sandstorm began on the evening of the first day of Eid. It went on for about 24 hours. Blowing not only sand, but plastic bags, paper and garbage everywhere. The winds were strong enough to knock over small trees.
It meant that we spent a day cooped up with a bunch of wild children since they couldn't go outside to play. Of course the kids were supplied with all their exciting toys they got for Eid to keep them busy. Most of these toys were of the noisy variety. Not to forget the balloons and pellet guns.
Boy was it a loooooong day!
It started to rain the evening of the second day of Eid. This settled the sand. The third day of Eid I stayed home and tried my best to clean house.
Dust, dust, dust, and more dust.
