Yesterday, there came a dust storm, reminiscent of the Dust Bowl of the 1930s.

@edgarblythe,
That was really something to watch! I’ve never been in a dust storm and after watching that hope I never will.

@jcboy,
It was a common occurrance some years back. I didn't recall, until this morning that the same thing happened in Phoenix not long ago.

I've been in one in May this year in Nevada: you hardly could see the windscreen wipers ... but e.g. those in Phoenix were even worse.

@Walter Hinteler,
I've only seen sand start to flood the road (Coors), once, which was scary enough. Give me fog any day.
