I’m sure most of you have seen the movie The Mummy. If so, I’m sure you remember the sandstorm scene with the huge, towering sand wall. Here are some pictures of a real sandstorm in Oman.

The sand wall, right before it hits the trailers. It’s actually much bigger than it looks.

Weather Phenomenon

It hailed today. I was in class, so I wasn’t able to see it. But I did see the aftermath. Ice everywhere! It kinda looked like snow. Yup… ice in the sonoran desert. Pretty awesome. I made a little ice man outside Hayden Library. I wish I had a camera so I could take a picture – of the ice man and the ice all around here… This is my first ever hail experience. Pretty awesome.

Beautiful Day

What a BEAUTIFUL DAY! I love it! Wooohooo!


What a lovely day… it’s awesome. The light coming through my windows is golden.

Kill Bill and awesome weather

What a SCHWEET movie! I can’t wait for Volume II.

The weather outside is AWESOME! I love it!

Weather Anomaly

The weather has been strangely nice since Wednesday. The air doesn’t feel like a furnace blast and I am not sweating out insane amounts of water. The mornings are actually rather chilly – they seem like Arizona winters, which means I feel cold. It warms up during the day to where there respectable heat – but not too hot or humid. This state can’t make up its mind about the weather.

We’re doing FTX this weekend. It should be cool – going out to the field… putting on our camou… YEAH! We leave on Tuesday morning and come back Friday morning. After that we have 3 days of classes (Subsistence) and then the finals and then I’m DONE!

That’s all… see y’all next week.
