Black cloud days

"October and November are wonderful months in Cairo. Air conditioners are switched off, windows are thrown open, and warm sunny afternoons give way to cool evening breezes. It's a pleasure to be outdoors — except when the black cloud appears. Then the coughing starts, eyes water and asthma sufferers and others flee indoors." (Thanks D.)

I saw the black cloud from the airplane asit was preparing to land. Frightening.
