Today's forcest: Sand

A few days ago, we were at work, going about our business when a glance outside revealed a dirty-yellow landscape. This was not the golden hue of a sunset, nor the purple haze of a smoggy day. So, we went outside to investigate.

Upon opening the door, we noticed a sudden dryness attack our mouths and nose. The sun looked like the moon and we could taste a grittiness on our teeth. I walked to the front of our office (which normally offers a spectacular view of the old city) only the outline of the Cathedral of St. James was barely visible. I went inside to check the weather, sensing this was some sort of sand storm but not knowing why it was happening. Google stated the forecast as 'Sand' - something I've never seen before and unlikely to ever happen in Canada.
