More often than we like. I've been living here since 2000 and we get a lot of them during the summer. When the wind picks up it is a sand storm in Dubai unless it rains.

Don't get me wrong, most days are clear. Think of it as snow storms during the autumn in the UK and US.

That is why today was terrible for good pictures of Infinity Tower. Other days it is clear and you get stunning images! Of course, Imre's pictures are always stunning sand storm or no sand storm.

Lol it's because the skyscrapers make them look so small that you don't see them at all.
