Gansu seems to have done something to anger the gods.
Last Friday, the majority of the province was hit by rain, extreme winds, sand, snow, frost and a whole host of other extremes of weather. With walls of sand big enough to engulf an entire county, nine centimeter deep snow in April and rapid increases and decreases in temperature, one wonders, what exactly did Gansu do to deserve this?
Specifically, the northwestern city of Jiuquan, which was pummeled by a gigantic wall of sand, which some brave souls even managed to catch on video. The videos have become a hit online, with a member of the city’s meteorological office stating that the wall of dust engulfed the county for 10 minutes with 47mph winds.
