    Been going on since 0400 yesterday. According to the weather people the winds are 35-40 knots with gusts up to 50 :eek1: .

    (Thats 40-46 mph with gusts up to 58).

    Now imagine a bunch of sand blowing around in those winds....

    Yes. Yes they do. Course the dust storms we get around here don't last for days but just enough to get a taste of what you're dealing with.

    Please be safe over there.

    Holy f'in shiat batman. I was wrapped up like the hadji's were and this sand is still kicking my ass :(

    Our smoke pit (built of plywood and 2x4) was destroyed. Several incidences of engine covers being ripped off aircraft.

    This wind is insane... where's the hurricane to go with it?
