It's "Amsheer" - The Windy Month

Amsheer has arrived. It is the month of windy, sandy, dusty, and sometimes rainy weather. It reminds me of "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day" x 30. Maybe not a lot of rain, but considering that there are no storm drains on the roads, a small shower can add up to road closures.

It's ok. I enjoy this weather. It reminds me of the changing weather in Maryland which occurs about 11 months out of the year - just kidding. It's the March weather with the wind. The October wind without the leaves blowing.

The clouds are amazing. Although I absolutely adore the sun and blue sky in Egypt, I also enjoy the rain, clouds rolling in, and clearing out. There is something about the air after a rain no matter how short or long; it seems fresher.

Ma'salaam,

I know how gorgeous the blue mid-eastern sky is... I went to Syria once and it was breath-taking. It must be similar to Egypt, since the environment is about the same.

I love to go outside right after the rain while in Egypt...as you said everything is just "fresh".....I remember waking Sarah up to see the rain storm....so infrequent I did not want her to miss it...........lol
