A Visit from the (Dust) Storm God

Gygaia Projects

Watching a storm roll in from the east, our team unplugs computers, moves all finds inside, and closes up windows and doors. We brace for the impending force of nature.

Storms here are particularly dynamic: rains and winds battering the research center; our eyes looking for the next bolt of lightning; our ears listening for the cracks of thunder that punctuate these ancient territories of the storm gods.

Northern winds bringing brown dust to Kaymakçı and the valley
And then the rain hits…
… followed by clearing skies and far-off lightning

Look forward to more posts from Gygaia Projects soon!
