Bloody hell, it’s an actual sandstorm out there!!!  I opened the patio door a crack to rescue the pool noodle off the balcony and got hit with a face full of sand!!!  Shit!

I can hear things being blown about on the terraces around me. It’s really quite scary!!

I following it on Twitter for a while. Lots of flights being divertrd, and Gran Canaria airport was closed for a while.  I've never known it happen before.  Like something out of a horror film.

It is scary. We have sunbeds upended and piled up by the wind around the pool and I've got half of the Sahara on my balcony. The windows are rattling.  It was 27 degrees at 7am. Can't put blinds out so apartment hot .   :whirlwind:

This is getting really quite scary now!  All airports in Canarias are now closed. Nothing going in or out and incoming flights are being diverted to Morocco, Madeira, Cape Verde and mainland Spain.

Schools are closed tomorrow and we’re on alert for red rain as clouds above the layer of dusty air begin to precipitate.  The second wave of calima hit about 4pm today with double the dust concentration of the first wave. I’m not leaving my apartment until this is over....

Nice pictures of Montaña Roja or Red Rock, same shot taken between yesterday and now. It’s horrifying!
