So today and yesterday were pretty all around nasty here. Yuck – sandstorms. Generally speaking this whole country is a little light on the aesthetic – it’s ugly here – everything is brown – always. Even the sky is brown. That’s just how it is. Of course when the sand rolls in its even nastier. Sydney was pumped – it was blowing bad enough this morning that the ministry closed down schools. I’m not sure that I really get that – I mean Kuwait is a desert – there are sandstorms and all. At least when Ft Benning gets closed down due to a chance of light snow flurries you can write that off to being in the deep south, Whatever, its a Kuwaiti snow day.
