Sand blizzard



There was a break in the storm late yesterday afternoon so we went down to lower Bayshore to check out the houses, which invariably become engulfed in the blown sand. The homeowners' association had been removing sand all day, which was great for the homeowners, but not so great for photography. (Click photos to enlarge.)

A few years ago I put together a series of photos showing the results of these storms, which you can see here: http://carolleigh.net/Bayshore%20Sandstorm/index.html

And just this past February, the houses were covered again: http://carolleigh.blogspot.com/2011/02/sand-blizzard.html

If people were to disappear from Earth, I'm sure these houses would melt into the sea and sand within just a couple years.
