Dust Storm






Since moving to Arizona 9 months ago, we have experienced a few things for the first time. One of them being our first dust storm. It was so amazing to see this big wall of dust roll into the valley. It was beautiful, and a little bit scary too. Not to mention the dust, that is now everywhere.

I found a few photos online that I thought really captured the storm.

And yay, Blooger actually let me add the pictures.
I hope you enjoy them.

Yes our house got hit by it-- It freaked the kids out. We stayed indoors, I have heard that you can get sick from the dust. (mold underneath the dirt gets stired up)

That looks exciting! But I am a secret bad weather junkie! LOL

I am the fool driving around just after the tornado looking at all the damage.

Awesome pics! If I can get Scooter, my personal dust devil, to slow down for a minute, I will show them to him and get his professional amateur meteorologist opinion on how likely that was to turn into a tornado.
