That would've been the accurate forecast for today in Baghdad, where the Associated Press reports that a "heavy sandstorm turned Iraq's capital into a pinkish haze Thursday, sending dozens of people to the hospital with respiratory problems and delaying a number of international flights."

It can't be good when your city's current condition on reads "Widespread Dust."

I am in Baghdad.

Its a pretty bad sandstorm, but not the worst. My lungs ache, but its tolerable.

I can't begin to imagine what a sandstorm would feel like. Keep safe, and thanks for all the good that you do out there.
