Monday evening we had another dust storm roll through. Here are a few pics to show its progression:
There is a mountain range behind all that dust rolling in. The dust obscures pretty much everything.
Here it comes! I was bracing for impact.
Visibility gradually gets worse.
A veritable tsunami of sand.
These storms are very common here in the summer. This year seems to be particularly active as many years we get maybe one or two all season and they aren’t nearly as widespread as these have been. They are amazing to watch usually from the safety of one’s home. Driving in them isn’t so fun but in a residential area it isn’t so bad. Driving on the freeway surrounded by endless desert is where things really get tricky.
