“Golden City” ?? 满城尽带黄金甲

Sand storm hit Beijing on Monday morning. Covered News please refer to following links:

English version read here and here
Chinese version read here

Early Monday morning, Xuan was up and requested for milk. When I stepped out from my bedroom, all I could see was yellowish-light from outside the window illuminated my whole interior. Hence, I went on to peep down and I was shocked to see that everything, floors, roofs, and cars were covered with yellowish sand! And the sky was so yellow too!

It was horrible!

"Golden Rain" is pouring... 老天竟下起“黄金雨”来了!

(that is a sun or a moon?)

hi all,
yes, this is 沙尘暴 happen quite often to Beijing during Spring. Thanks goodness we are all fine, me and Xuan have to stay home but daddy still gotta go to work loh. According to the paper, the sand are from 内蒙古沙地. Predicted going to have another 3 sandstorms within 10 days from now! when the sandstorm hits, people here use 纱布 or 丝巾 to cover their head when they expose under it.
