We've all seen sandstorms in movies, but unless you've been to the American desert or overseas, chances are you've never seen just what a terrifying site a sandstorm can be.

I recall driving through a very minor sandstorm in the Mojave many years ago. I have to admit it was pretty scary. We later found our that they can be so bad that they can wreck your windshield or even harm your car's finish.

This sandstorm took place in Saudi Arabia and it's obvious that this is a storm of near biblical proportions. Just imagine if we had storms like this here. Imagine a hurricane of sand and you'll get an idea of what I'm talking about.
