December 12, 2010
The dust storm that started on Saturday continues unabated into Sunday afternoon and evening, with temperatures dropping and the wind continuing in full force. At 1:30 PM the conditions were:
Temp: 45 F
Wind Chill: 35 F
Avg. Winds: 20 MPH
Gusts: 34 MPH
I attempted to make this report from downtown Mitzpe Ramon, but all you can hear is the wind and my muttering something about the Geminids meteor shower:
The storm is supposed to begin tapering off by Monday noon, so it will be touch and go for the weather on Monday night when the Geminids peak.
